Welcome to the step-by-step guide from Medha Cloud! We're here to help you with some easy-to-follow steps of installing Apache on Ubuntu 22.04. We aim to make this process easy and clear.

Step 1: Checking Your Ubuntu Version

First, make sure that you're using Ubuntu 22.04 to ensure that the installation goes smoothly. To check your Ubuntu version, open a terminal window and run the following command:

cat /etc/*release

???? Key Takeaways: Using the correct version of Ubuntu is essential for the installation process.

Step 2: Installing Apache

Next, we will install Apache with a simple command in the terminal, and the Apache web server package will be added to your system.

sudo apt install apache2

???? Key Takeaways: The Apache installation is quick and sets the base for your web server.

Step 3: Configuring Apache

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

???? Key Takeaways: Proper configuration is necessary for Apache to meet your specific needs.

Step 4: Checking Apache Status

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

sudo systemctl status apache2

Step 5: Setting Up the Firewall

If you’re using a firewall, you'll need to open port 80 to allow Apache to communicate with the outside world. To do this, run the following command:

sudo ufw allow 80

???? Key Takeaways: Ensuring the firewall settings are correct is essential for external communications.

Step 6: Testing Apache

To finish, we will test Apache. You should see the Apache default welcome page when visiting a local address in your web browser, confirming that the installation was successful.
