Change ServerAdmin as you need.

The folder of the WEB Pages by default is ServerRoot "/etc/httpd". Directory must be set to the same folder, so change the line

<Directory "/etc/httpd">

This folder must have read and execution access, so

chmod o+x /etc/httpd

Change AllowOverride from none (default) to All so .htaccess will works.

Now you need the ~/public_html folder for each user. (to get the root page of each user as http://localhost/~yourusername/. Unremark this line:

Include conf/extra/httpd-userdir.conf

Now as root you need to create the ~/public_html for each user and change the access to (755) of each one.

chmod 755 /home
chmod 755 /home/username
chmod 755 /home/username/public_html

You can comment out this line if you want to use SSL:

LoadModule ssl_module modules/

If you need to use virtual domains, uncomment the line:

Include conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf

and in /etc/httpd/conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf you must to add all the virtual domains. (plus into /etc/hosts if you want to test those virtuals domains)

Edit /etc/httpd/conf/extra/httpd-default.conf and change ServerSignature to Off and ServerToken to Prod for hiding critical data


Edit: /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

Comment out: LoadModule mpm_event_module modules/

Uncomment: LoadModule mpm_prefork_module modules/

Run as root:

mysql_install_db --user=mysql --basedir=/usr --datadir=/var/lib/mysql

Now you have the root of the MySQL Server.

systemctl enable mysqld
systemctl start mysqld

sh /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation

That all to get a web server ready to be customized as you need.
