Introduction

This how-to will help you with your install and configuration of Apache on your Fedora 22 server. Apache is a web server that is very popular in Linux systems and over the Internet. It is used by many Web Hosting companies worldwide because of its popularity and efficiency in hosting sites over the World Wide Web.

Prerequisites

You need a Fedora 22 server that is configured with a static IP address. If you do not have a server already, you can visit our Cloud Hosting page and spin a new server up in under 30 seconds.

Install Apache

To get started, log into your Fedora 22 via SSH or the VNC Console in cloud.atlantic.net. Atlantic.Net Cloud servers are setup as minimal installations in order to avoid having unnecessary packages from being installed and never used.  Because of this, let’s make sure that your server is fully up-to-date.

dnf update

With the server up-to-date, we can continue the installation process on your Fedora 22 server.

Install Apache with the following command:

dnf install httpd

Start Apache with the following command:

systemctl start httpd.service

You will want the Apache service to start on start-up/reboot with the following command:

systemctl enable httpd.service

Additionally you must add the following commands in your Firewall-cmd to allow Apache through:

firewall-cmd --set-default-zone=public
firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-service=http
firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-service=https
firewall-cmd --reload

Verify if all is working by typing http://YOUR.IP.ADD.RESS

Your IP could be retrieved from the server with following command:

ifconfig
