???? Key Takeaways: The Apache installation is quick and sets the base for your web server.
Once Apache is installed, we can begin to configure and customize it. You will adjust Apache's configuration files to meet your needs, save the changes, and then restart Apache to apply them.
sudo nano /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
To restart Apache, run the following command:
sudo systemctl restart apache2

Then, we will verify that Apache is running properly with a straightforward status check.

sudo ufw allow 80
