I can't believe I am struggling with this. I've set up ites on Centos but Apache on Ubuntu is so different. Running Ubuntu 14 on AWS. I want to setup joomla but I can't even get the default index.html that is included with apache2 to open! I am only going to have one website on this server. I installed all LAMP components via sudo apt-get install lamp-server^. Can someone tell me what if anything I need to do with apache2.conf, the file in sites-available and or the config file in sites-enabled?
I would have though that after the initial install of LAMP if I just entered the public address of my EC2 instance/index.html the default page would come up, but instead I get nothing.
Any help would be appreciated. I need to at least get the default index.html loading before I bother installing joomla.
I assume its something really simple that I am missing here.
