View Full Version : getting started with apache

November 7th, 2010, 09:25 AM

I was trying to setup hosting for my website and after some googleing I decided to start with apache.
I installed apache and it works, since I see a webpage when I go to my domain, but I have no idea how to change it :(
I am completely new to apache or any other hosting software. I tried reading the manual online, but it didn't help at all. Anyone can help?
in which directory is the html(or php) of the website that is shown? How to change it?

You'll want to have a look at the /etc/apache2 files in your server to determine and alter the configuration. By default the hosting should come from /var/www.
