This example will guide you through setting up a back end serving an a Hello World HTML page.
Order matters for this step!
sudo apt-get install apache2
Apache files live in
/var/www/html/. Lets quickly get there. Make sure you're in your root directory first,
html directory is where all your website files will live. Lets quickly make a simple Hello World file.
Using your favorite text editor, type the following in
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>Hello World!</title> </head> <body> <h1>Hello World!</h1> </body> </html>
Save this file as
index.html in the current directory and you're set to go!
To visit the page you just created, in your browser of choice, go to
localhost. If that doesn't work, try
127.0.0.1. You should see "Hello World!" as a
h1. You're done!
