Configure Apache Webserver
By default on Ubuntu 18.04, the Apache 2 document root is found at /var/www/html. For our basic setup, we're going to ditch the /var/www/html folder and run straight from /var/www. If you already have a site running at this location, remember to configure the virtual host's path to your preferred location in the steps that follow.
Disable the default site.
sudo a2dissite 000-default
Enable mod-rewrite (used by our kiosk system)
sudo a2enmod rewrite
Create the convention_master Apache configuration file, and copy in the configuration in the box below.
sudo joe /etc/apache2/sites-available/convention_master.conf
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin NameOfSomeone DocumentRoot /var/www ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/cm_error.log # Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit, # alert, emerg. LogLevel warn CustomLog /var/log/apache2/cm_access.log combined # Needed for .htaccess functionality <Directory /var/www> AllowOverride All Require all granted </Directory> </VirtualHost>
Enable the site.
sudo a2ensite convention_master
Restart the Apache server to enable config and modules
sudo systemctl restart apache2.service
Test your Apache server to see if you have succeeded, by navigating to your IP address as configured in step 3.2. (Example: http://10.10.2.10/)
Seeing a “index of” or “It works!” or even a “Forbidden” message is good.
