I open up my linux box and make sure its always updated before anything by this command:
sudo apt-get update
Now we will install apache
sudo apt-get install apache2
and then y for yes
Now we will check on the firewall
sudo ufw app list
which shows all of apaches are all setup
sudo ufw app info "Apache Full"
This shows ports 80,443
Now lets allow that
sudo ufq allow in "Apache Full"
So now I am going to find the ip by this command:
Now leading to that ip in your browser will take you to the default apache page.
Now we will install my MySQL
sudo apt install mysql-server
and then y for yes and do it again when it asks
This will ask a few questions just follow with what you would like.
After that MySQL will be all setup
sudo apt install php libapache2-mod-php php-mysql
Again just type y for yes
This will take a second but it is installing.
sudo nano /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/dir.conf
After that command you will want to see index.php and you will want to move it to the front to be the first thing it looks at.
Hit Ctrl X to get out and say yes to save. If you are having issues saving its because you did not do it as a super user.
Now restart apache
sudo systemctl restart apache2
and then check the status
sudo systemctl status apache2
and now it should show that it is active running
We are now going to create a index.php since we don’t have one
cd /var/www/html ls nano index.php
For a test I just have this put into it:
<html> <head> <title>PHP Test</title> </head> <body> <?php echo '<p>Hello World</p>' ; ?> </body> </html>
And then we just save it and check out our page which now shows Hello World.
