View Full Version : [SOLVED] apache won't change from default

no matter what I do I cannot get my fresh install of apache to change off the default


It works! This is the default web page for this server.
The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet.

this is really annoying, my config file at /etc/apache2/apache2.conf is as follows (it is mainly the original with a few commented changes)


#
# Based upon the NCSA server configuration files originally by Rob McCool.
#
# This is the main Apache server configuration file. It contains the
# configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
# See http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/ for detailed information about
# the directives.
#
# Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
# what they do. They're here only as hints or reminders. If you are unsure
# consult the online docs. You have been warned.
#
# The configuration directives are grouped into three basic sections:
# 1. Directives that control the operation of the Apache server process as a
# whole (the 'global environment').
# 2. Directives that define the parameters of the 'main' or 'default' server,
# which responds to requests that aren't handled by a virtual host.
# These directives also provide default values for the settings
# of all virtual hosts.
# 3. Settings for virtual hosts, which allow Web requests to be sent to
# different IP addresses or hostnames and have them handled by the
# same Apache server process.
#
# Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many
# of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the
# server will use that explicit path. If the filenames do *not* begin
# with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so "/var/log/apache2/foo.log"
# with ServerRoot set to "" will be interpreted by the
# server as "//var/log/apache2/foo.log".
#

### Section 1: Global Environment
#
# The directives in this section affect the overall operation of Apache,
# such as the number of concurrent requests it can handle or where it
# can find its configuration files.
#

#
# ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
# configuration, error, and log files are kept.
#
# NOTE! If you intend to place this on an NFS (or otherwise network)
# mounted filesystem then please read the LockFile documentation (available
# at <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.1/mod/mpm_common.html#lockfile>);
# you will save yourself a lot of trouble.
#
# Do NOT add a slash at the end of the directory path.
#
ServerRoot "/etc/apache2"

ServerName cyberking


#
# The document root is where the server reads files from
# eg if the Document Root is /usr/web then
# http://www.my.host.com/index.html refers to /usr/web/index.html
DocumentRoot /svr/http
<Directory /svr/http>
AllowOverride None
Options None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

#
# the server admin is an email address which is put in error documents

#
# the directory index is a list of names of documents the server
# will try to use when opening a folder, these are in order of
# priority
DirectoryIndex index.php index.cgi index.html index.htm

# identification number when it starts.
# This needs to be set in /etc/apache2/envvars

# Timeout: The number of seconds before receives and sends time out.

# during a persistent connection. Set to 0 to allow an unlimited amount.

Hi there.

Well, may be you are checking the files on the wrong folder.
By defauly, like if using LAMP, the folder is located at:

/var/www/

There you will find the file of html. And that is the folder which will run on default, when you write:

http://localhost/

If this is not the case, then I would suggest you to install LAMP Linux Apache MySql Php. Find the following website to know how to install it:

Thanks.
