In this blog series, we will aim to give an overview of the basics of using Payara Server in a production scenario using Apache Web Server (sometimes called httpd) and Ubuntu. Many of the concepts described in these blogs do not rely on the tools we are using here and can be applied to other scenarios.
Our aim is to configure the following:
