Hello @utsavrathour,

To me, it looks like that either the Apache service is not running or your firewall is blocking the connections.

First check if Apache is running:

systemctl status apache2

If Apache is not running you could start it with:

systemctl start apache2

If Apache is running, check if ufw allows TCP connections on port 80 and 443:

ufw status

If this is the case, you can follow the steps from this article here on how to configure your ufw:

For more information, I would recommend checking this article on How to Troubleshoot Common Apache Issues on Linux Server.

The advantage of open source software isn’t just that it’s available for free. A further plus of open source software is, as its name suggest, that every user has access to its development code. This allows users to independently edit and continue developing the software. For experienced users, open software eliminates the need of worrying about support for a particular software being discontinued.

Installing a LAMP server offers more than just high flexibility and low prices: it incorporates robust components that mesh well with one another. LAMP servers enable users to operate both static and dynamic websites. Wikipedia runs on the software MediaWiki, which is just one of many examples of a website that was developed on a LAMP system.
