I think a nice introduction to those services is the "MapServer OGC Web
Services Workshop", and if you are on Windows it is included in MS4W as
a package (https://ms4w.com) so you can run it locally, or you can view
the workshop on the official MS4W demo server at
https://ms4w.me/ms-ogc-workshop/ (I recommend clicking the "Slides for
hands-on session" link there, which is old but still does a great job in
explaining how WMS/WFS relates to MapServer)
> You don't know what you don't know.

> From a tomcat training video
> Web SITE
> Web SERVICE
> Web SOCKET
> Site - formatting
> Service - data
> So a Web mapping/feature service shares maps/features where a wms client
> like openlayers or leaflet does formatting.
> Database ->WMS/WFS -> OpenLayers = website
