Downloading and Configuring Web Application Frontend

The objective of this lab will be to download and configure the frontend for our application. You will first need to download the code of the frontend from GitHub. After that, you will unpack it, move it to the correct directory, and configure the proper SELinux context for the newly downloaded files, so that they can be properly accessed from the outside world without any problems. This is a common security practice with the Apache web server. If this is not done, the files can become inaccessible, and a portion of your site will be non-functional.
