    apachectl error

    Hi guys,
    I'm instaling Wordpress using this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pOESHd1G-HI&t=1399s
    at 23:19 im stuck.


    apachectl -t give me:
    Command 'apachectl' is available in the following places
    * /sbin/apachectl
    * /usr/sbin/apachectl
    The command could not be located because '/sbin:/usr/sbin' is not included the PATH environment variable.
    This is most likely caused by the lack of administrative privileges associated with your user account.
    apachectl: command not found


    What do I do to fix this issue?

    Ubuntu 24.04 LTS

    Re: apachectl error

    The apachectl -t should output Syntax OK if there are no problems. When you see the error message "'/sbin:/usr/sbin' is not included the PATH environment variable", you should run the following from a terminal and a user should have both in the PATH. They should show on a default system. Have you made any changes to your user PATH?

    Code:
     echo $PATH

    Not as I'm aware of.
    I've follow the tutorial to the letter.

    I'll try echo $PATH this evening and keep it posted.

    Some of the commands require sudo so are you using sudo when suggested. If you run the echo $PATH command, it should output th various directories in your user path which should include both '/sbin:/usr/sbin'.

    echo $PATH give me that:
    /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/games:/usr/games:/snap/bin

    Re: apachectl error

    But if I use the command sudo apachectl -t, I have Syntax OK.

    Does that means I'm good to continue?

    Re: apachectl error

    If I run the apachectl -t command, I get the Syntax OK as either a user or root (sudo) but the PATH info is different. If you are following the tutorial I would suggest you pay close attention to when sudo is used. If you are doing commands as a regular user, you might try the full path as suggested:

    /sbin/apachectl -t
    /usr/sbin/apachectl -t
    I'm not expert on Apache and know nothing about wordpress.
