Of Code and Me

Somewhere to write down all the stuff I'm going to forget and then need

Setup Apache on Ubuntu April 8, 2010

Filed under: Linux,Systems Administration,Web — Rupert Bates @ 4:21 pm

Go to System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager

Find the apache2 package (using the quick search is the easiest way), click ‘Mark for installation’ and then click the ‘Apply’ button

When the install is completed check that:

  1. the Apache program files are in /etc/apache2/
  2. there is an index.html file in /var/www/ (this is the root of the default vhost)
  3. apache2 is running, the command: ps -A | grep apache2 should return at least 1 result
  4. browsing to http://localhost/index.html serves that file successfully (I needed to restart it after the install before I could browse to localhost)

To start, stop and restart Apache :
/etc/init.d/apache2 start
/etc/init.d/apache2 s
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart
