Apache2 Debian Default Page: It works
This is the default welcome page used to test the correct operation of the Apache2 server after installation on Debian systems.If you can read this page, it means that the Apache HTTP server installed atthis site is working properly. You should replace this file (located at/var/www/html/index.html) before continuing to operate your HTTP server.
If you are a normal user of this web site and don't know what this page isabout, this probably means that the site is currently unavailable due tomaintenance.If the problem persists, please contact the site's administrator.Configuration Overview
Debian's Apache2 default configuration is different from theupstream default configuration, and split into several files optimized forinteraction with Debian tools. The configuration system isfully documented in/usr/share/doc/apache2/README.Debian.gz. Refer to this for the fulldocumentation. Documentation for the web server itself can befound by accessing the manual if the apache2-docpackage was installed on this server.
The configuration layout for an Apache2 web server installation on Debian systems is as follows:/etc/apache2/|-- apache2.conf| `--ports.conf|-- mods-enabled| |-- *.load| `-- *.conf|-- conf-enabled| `-- *.conf|-- sites-enabled| `-- *.conf apache2.conf is the main configuration file. It puts the pieces together by including all remaining configuration files when starting up the web server. ports.conf is always included from the main configuration file. It is used to determine the listening ports for incoming connections, and this file can be customized anytime. Configuration files in the mods-enabled/, conf-enabled/ and sites-enabled/ directories contain particular configuration snippets which manage modules, global configuration fragments, or virtual host configurations, respectively. They are activated by symlinking available configuration files from their respective *-available/ counterparts. These should be managed by using our helpers a2enmod,a2dismod, a2ensite,a2dissite,and a2enconf,a2disconf . See their respective man pages for detailed information. The binary is called apache2. Due to the use of environment variables, in the default configuration, apache2 needs to be started/stopped with /etc/init.d/apache2 or apache2ctl. Calling /usr/bin/apache2 directly will not work with the default configuration.Document Roots
By default, Debian does not allow access through the web browser toany file apart of those located in /var/www,public_htmldirectories (when enabled) and /usr/share (for webapplications). If your site is using a web document rootlocated elsewhere (such as in /srv) you may need to whitelist yourdocument root directory in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf.
The default Debian document root is /var/www/html. Youcan make your own virtual hosts under /var/www. This is differentto previous releases which provides better security out of the box.Reporting Problems
Please use the reportbug tool to report bugs in theApache2 package with Debian. However, check existing bug reports before reporting a new bug.
Please report bugs specific to modules (such as PHP and others)to respective packages, not to the web server itself.
