(Linux beginner here)
This is a new installation of lubuntu. I’ve also installed samba and established communication to and from my Win10 PC.
I then installed Apache and got the “it works” page on both the localhost and my PC. So far so good, then, next day, apache failed to start.
I’m not sure where to start debugging this. Any ideas gratefully received
When you say “failed to start”, what do you mean exactly?
Do you see it running at all when using either
top command or
ps command? If not, you can start it via
Otherwise, you can maybe check the log file at /var/log/messages but I don’t recall if that’s where Apache sends its logs. There might be an apache folder or httpd folder in that same location though (for Apache logs).
Also, Apache won’t start automatically after reboot unless you tell Systemd (the service+system manager) to start it for you.
