Introduction

In this How-To, we will walk you through the install of Apache in your Fedora 20 Cloud 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 world wide because of its popularity and efficiency in hosting sites over the World Wide Web.

Prerequisites

A cloud server with Fedora 20 already installed.  If you don’t already have a server, please spin up a market-leading cloud server in under 30 seconds.

Installing Apache in Fedora 20

Install Apache with the following command:

yum 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

Add the following commands in Apache to override in Firewall-cmd as follows:

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

You can now verify that Apache is installed correctly by typing http:// and your IP on your browser.

http://YOUR.IP.ADD.RESS

You should see the following screenshot in your browser:
