I followed this guide, to the best of my understanding:
And I'm stuck right after the install.
Here's what I did so far:
- since I already had a working install (which I broke) I thought it was a good idea to start
following the instructions at 'Starting over'
- I typed
sudo apt-get --purge remove apache2 apache2-mpm-prefork apache2-utils apache2.2-common libapache2-mod-php5 libapr1 libaprutil1 libdbd-mysql-perl libdbi-perl libmysqlclient15off libnet-daemon-perl libplrpc-perl libpq5 mysql-client-5.0 mysql-common mysql-server mysql-server-5.0 php5-common php5-mysql
which did something, but then gave error messages about packages not found etc...
since I wanted to complete this step, I sudo apt-get --purge remove'd all packages seperately, and followed through with necessary options.
- as recommended I sudo rm -r /etc/apache2'd
- followed by reinstalling apt-get install apache2, no errors here
- it now tells me to visit http://localhost to test the installation, which just gives me
Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to localhost
I'm at a loss. I managed to configure my apache quite decently but wanted a redo and now I'm stuck even before the real configuration.
