If you are a web hosting provider, setting up web servers will be a fairly repetitive task to the extent that you might want to automate the whole process of creating and configuring the website. However, if you have a few websites to manage, setting up a web server and hosting your application will often be relatively straightforward. Once you have set up the web server, the changes in the configuration will be rare and only on a need basis. A typical web administrator spends far more time maintaining the web farm than configuring it. This chapter focuses on maintaining the web server. You will learn about log gathering, analysis, monitoring, and automation.
