Apache configuration requires patience and technical know-how. For instance, the primary Apache configuration file is the “httpd.conf” which contains a lot of configuration statements that need not be changed for a basic installation. But, for advanced usage, in an IT organization, many changes might be required for making a website up and running. The file is very large and cluttered and requires technical knowledge for error-free installation. The “httpd.conf” file is well commented but it may be completely understood by a programmer or administrator. During configuration, the Listen statement, which defines the IP address and port for Apache to listen for page requests must be modified. This may sound complex, but simply requires some knowledge or website hosting and networking. The “index.html” file is a default file in a web server and needs to be edited as well. Upon proper configuration, the Apache server can be started. But in case of any errors in the systematic process, it may refuse to start, and the installation and configuration process may be required from scratch.
