Install Apache2

General Information

Installing a web serving application is usually one of the most essential things on a FreeBSD server.

  1. Root access to the server
  2. Internet access
  3. Compilation tools


First, let’s download and untar Apache 2.0.52!

 # wget # tar zxvf httpd-2.0.52.tar.gz 

Now that Apache has been extracted, let’s change to its directory.

 # cd httpd-2.0.52 

Now we’ll create a unique group and user for Apache to run under. adidas zx pas cher new balance gris basket nike air max 1 nike air max 90 pas cher nike air max 2018 ugg boots pas cher This can be useful when browsing logs, or even for security.

 # pw group add websrv # pw user add websrv -g websrv -s /sbin/nologin -d /usr/local/apache 

Now that we’ve created Apache’s group and user, let’s configure it with DSO support. chaussure timberland homme adidas stan smith pas cher nike air zoom pegasus Christian Louboutin Pas Cher We’ll also include the

–with-php and –with-mysql switches just in case you want to install them later on.

 # ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache --enable-mods-shared=all --enable-so --with-php --with-mysql 

After that’s run through its boring process of making sure you have everything Apache needs in the right place,

we’ll compile the sources.

 # make 

And now that’s done, we should install the compiled binaries and other files.

 # make install 

Now we need to make sure that the Apache libraries are installed, to do this, we’ll add a line to our


 # echo "/usr/local/apache/modules" >> /etc/ 

As we’ve done that, we’ll have to create a cache and links for the shared libraries.

 # ldconfig 

Wahey! Apache is installed, but, before we can fire the beast up, we need to do a little configuring. botte ugg pas cher nike air max 90 bottes ugg australia pas cher nike air max command soldes Soldes Chaussures Adidas Don’t worry, it’s not hard.


First, we’ll make Apache recognize other types of document other than .html.

 # pico /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf 

Now hold CTRL+W to bring up Pico’s where feature, and type “AddType”. cheap ffxiv gil Adidas soldes ugg prix france chaussure nike cortez new balance homme Add the following lines:

 AddType application/x-httpd-php .php AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps 

Now hold CTRL+W again to bring up the where feature again, and type “DirectoryIndex”. louboutin homme chaussure adidas zx flux timberland discount ugg bailey button boots 2018 nike air max This is where we set the files that the server should look for in a directory before displaying everything in that directory (the index file). nike air max 2017 pas cher new balance pas cher nike chaussure In this example, index.php will be shown first, however if that doesn’t exist, index.html will be shown.

Find the User and Group directives and change whatever you have there to:

 User websrv Group websrv 

Double check your changes, save and quit.
