Hosting Web Apps

We discuss the 3 main moving parts needed to host a web application.

Previous: Linux Permissions
Next: Nginx

We talk about the three main moving parts of hosting a web application:

  1. The web server (e.g. Nginx, Apache)
  2. The application gateway (e.g. php-fpm, gunicorn)
  3. The application (your code)

These three pieces are required, but the application gateway isn't often talked about. We'll discuss these parts before moving onto seeing how to install and configure a PHP web application.
