• How to install Apache on CentOS?

    First you need to install Apache using this command

    yum install httpd

    You then need to modify the apache global configurations to allow htaccess rules on your sites to override default rules, you can do that by editing the httpd.conf file using the command

    vi /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

    then modify the following line

    AllowOveride None

    to

    AllowOveride All

    Save the file then run the following command

    chkconfig httpd on

    This will make sure that apache runs at startup, then turn it on using the following command

    service httpd start

    To access your server from the outside world you need to disable the iptables firewall, use this command

    service iptables stop

    Then type your machine IP address in the browser and you should be able to view a page similar to this one
