# Service httpd start

To make Apache auto-executed (autorun), activate by running this command:

# cp /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf ~/httpd.conf.backup

vhost. To do this bias begins with a web store which is set a variety of user (user). This user needs to be created beforehand with the command:

# useradd user
# passwd userpassword

Uncheck the comment “#” on the following existing line in the httpd.conf file:

Then edit or create new files with the command:

# vi /etc/httpd/conf.d/vhost.conf

<VirtualHost *:80>


DocumentRoot /home/<o:p></o:p>

ErrorLog /home/<o:p></o:p>

CustomLog /home/ combined<o:p></o:p>


<VitualHost *:80>

DocumentRoot /home/
ErrorLog /home/
CustomLog /home/ combined

After completed, just run the Apache service.

# service httpd restart

Create a database and user that will access it with the command:

mysql> create database namedatabase;
mysql> grant all on namedatabase.* to 'nameuser' identified by 'passworduser';

Run the command quit to end, the database is ready to use for the needs of web servers and server-side scripting.
