Are you in charge of a production website and you need it to scale to meet your users' demand? In this course we're going to get you started on your path to doing just that. First up, we're going to cover what it takes to build scalable internet architectures. Then, we'll look at leveraging a key tool to help us do that in, Installing and Configuring the Squid proxy server. Next, we'll look at how to add additional functionality to our web servers with, Configuring Advanced HTTP Services Apache modules, and we'll wrap it up with a key technique for scaling your website, Configuring Proximity Caching for HTTP Services. By the end of this course you'll know how to install and configure the Squid proxy server as a forward and reverse proxy. You'll also learn configuring modules and other techniques to make your website scale. Before beginning this course you should be familiar with Linux operating system concepts, like logging in, and networking concepts like IP addressing and routing, and also TCP based services. You'll also want to understand service management with systemd and basic configuration of Apache.
