I just installed ubuntu desktop (because I figured server will be too much for me, and apparently I was right) and I'm trying to configure my apache web server but unfortunately it has nothing to do with the way I'm used to configuring it on windows.
I installed the package
lamp-server^ which supposedly packs php and mysql as well but I haven't even got to those yet.
After I installed the package and went to
http://localhost I saw the default welcoming page, so far so good. However I want to move the root folder from
/home/user/www/html since I didn't really know how much space to give these partitions and I gave
home significantly more space. To do this I would have to edit
httpd.conf but there is no such file on the system. After a brief research I found that I have to edit
/etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf which is a virtual server, I guess. So I edited it like so
ServerName localhost ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost DocumentRoot /home/user/www/html
Not only am I continuing to get this annoying message
AH00558: apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.1.1. Set the 'ServerName' directive globally to suppress this message
Additionally I'm getting 403 access denied when I try to access
I have been looking for solutions on the web as well as on the lamp page but I just can't seem to get things right, it's very exhausting..
