Complete!

The install of Apache on Fedora 30 is complete. Next, proceed to do some basics to verify that it is actually working.

Allow Apache HTTP service on Firewall

Firewalld is running by default on Fedora 30.

firewall-cmd --state
running

Therefore, if firewalld is running, you need to allow HTTP service through it to allow external access to the web server.

firewall-cmd --add-port=80/tcp --permanent

Reload Firewalld

firewall-cmd --reload

If you plan on configuring HTTPS, then you can open port 443 on firewalld as shown below;

firewall-cmd --add-port=80/tcp --permanent

To verify the Apache HTTP port is opened on Firewalld;

firewall-cmd --list-ports | grep 80
80/tcp

Running Apache web server

To start and enable Apache to run on system boot;

systemctl start httpd
systemctl enable httpd

Verify Apache Web server

Apache ships with a default test page which you can use to verify if Apache is ready to serve the web content. It is accessed via the URL, http://<hostname or web-server-host-IP>. Hence, if everything is fine, when you access the URL above via the browser, you should land on Fedora Apache test page.

Well that is how easy it is to install Apache on Fedora 30. You are good to go. You might

As one of the steps of hardening Apache Web server, consider removing the test page. See how to remove Apache Test Page by following the link below;
