apache is a powerful web server. apache serves html/css/cgi/pl out of the box, and other languages/frameworks via extensions.


root # emerge apache



Many packages have apache2 use flags, and require them to be supported by apache. Setting a system wide apache2 use flag is a good idea.

   /etc/portage/make.conf - set system wide apache2 useflag
USE="apache2 ..........."


Apache's configuration files are broken up and located in several spots.

  • /etc/conf.d/apache2
  • /etc/apache2/httpd.conf
  • /etc/apache2/modules.d/*
  • /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/*

conf.d controls the init script, adding things to it such as -D SECURITY & -D PHP5 will enable web application fire-walling & the php scripting language.

httpd.conf controls how the server behaves, at the bottom of the file it has directives to include configuration files ending in .conf in /etc/apache2/modules.d & /etc/apache2/vhosts.d

   /etc/portage/make.conf - set system wide apache2 useflag
USE="apache2 ..........."


To start apache immediately:

root # rc-service apache2 start

To start apache upon boot:

root # rc-update add apache2
