dnf install httpd

Dependencies resolved. ====================================================================================================================== Package Arch Version Repository Size ====================================================================================================================== Installing: httpd x86_64 2.4.27-2.fc26 updates 1.3 M Installing dependencies: apr x86_64 1.6.2-1.fc26 updates 118 k apr-util x86_64 1.5.4-5.fc26 fedora 95 k fedora-logos-httpd noarch 26.0.1-1.fc26 fedora 33 k httpd-filesystem noarch 2.4.27-2.fc26 updates 27 k httpd-tools x86_64 2.4.27-2.fc26 updates 88 k mod_http2 x86_64 1.10.10-1.fc26 updates 149 k Transaction Summary ====================================================================================================================== Install 7 Packages Total download size: 1.8 M Installed size: 4.8 M Is this ok [y/N]:
After installation complete, we need to enable server and start it.
systemctl enable httpd systemctl start httpd
Now check the Apache status
[root@fedora ~]# systemctl status httpd ● httpd.service - The Apache HTTP Server Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/httpd.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled) Active: active (running) since Sun 2017-08-13 22:04:57 WIB; 4s ago Docs: man:httpd.service(8) Main PID: 15415 (httpd) Status: "Processing requests..."

Configure the firewall
firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=http firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=https systemctl reload firewalld
At this point, our Apache web server is ready. You may check by opening a web browser and type your server IP address.
Step 2. Install MariaDB Server
MariaDB is a free, open source database server. After installing Apache, now we need to install MariaDB server.
dnf install mariadb-server
Start/Enable MariaDB Service
systemctl start mariadb systemctl enable mariadb
[root@fedora ~]# mysql_secure_installation NOTE: RUNNING ALL PARTS OF THIS SCRIPT IS RECOMMENDED FOR ALL MariaDB SERVERS IN PRODUCTION USE! PLEASE READ EACH STEP CAREFULLY! In order to log into MariaDB to secure it, we'll need the current password for the root user. If you've just installed MariaDB, and you haven't set the root password yet, the password will be blank, so you should just press enter here. Enter current password for root (enter for none): OK, successfully used password, moving on... Setting the root password ensures that nobody can log into the MariaDB root user without the proper authorisation. You already have a root password set, so you can safely answer 'n'. Change the root password? [Y/n] n By default, a MariaDB installation has an anonymous user, allowing anyone to log into MariaDB without having to have a user account created for them. This is intended only for testing, and to make the installation go a bit smoother. You should remove them before moving into a production environment. Remove anonymous users? [Y/n] n ... skipping. Normally, root should only be allowed to connect from 'localhost'. This ensures that someone cannot guess at the root password from the network. Disallow root login remotely? [Y/n] n ... skipping. By default, MariaDB comes with a database named 'test' that anyone can access. This is also intended only for testing, and should be removed before moving into a production environment. Remove test database and access to it? [Y/n] y - Dropping test database... ... Success! - Removing privileges on test database... ... Success! Reloading the privilege tables will ensure that all changes made so far will take effect immediately. Reload privilege tables now? [Y/n] y ... Success! Cleaning up... All done! If you've completed all of the above steps, your MariaDB installation should now be secure. Thanks for using MariaDB!
Step 4. Install PHP
The last thing to do on How to install LAMP Server on Fedora 26 is to install PHP and modules.
dnf install php php-common
[root@fedora ~]# dnf install php php-common Last metadata expiration check: 1:09:42 ago on Sun 13 Aug 2017 09:08:47 PM WIB. Dependencies resolved. ====================================================================================================================== Package Arch Version Repository Size ====================================================================================================================== Installing: php x86_64 7.1.8-1.fc26 updates 2.8 M Installing dependencies: php-cli x86_64 7.1.8-1.fc26 updates 4.2 M php-common x86_64 7.1.8-1.fc26 updates 1.0 M php-json x86_64 7.1.8-1.fc26 updates 69 k Transaction Summary ====================================================================================================================== Install 4 Packages Total download size: 8.1 M Installed size: 30 M Is this ok [y/N]:
