View Full Version : [ubuntu] bit confused about apache

February 13th, 2009, 02:06 PM
feel a bit stupid, seems to happen a lot while learning Ubuntu!

so here we go, tried installing lamp then had problems with the DPKG but then ran the update manager and apache seemed to load.it even asked me to input a root password.

but. . what next? is that it do I go to a specific file to see where I store files? How do I test to see if everything works?

Thanks for listening

Open your web browser and go type "localhost" to the address bar. You should see Apache's default page.

All files go to /var/www, although you can easily change this or add new web directories with "a2ensite" command.

I recommend you to install rapache (apt:rapache), which is a GUI to manage your apache sites and enable/disable modules.
