Apache LAMP Stack Ubuntu 16.04

I am looking to host more than one site off of a single VPS. However I want to serve files from my domain in subfolder such as this http://45.55.78.156/agent/index.html or http://45.55.78.156/students/index.html, or http://45.55.78.156/teachers/index.html. When I visit this url in browser I get a 'NOT FOUND' error. How may I fix this? I do not want to use sub-domain, if I can avoid it. Are there any tutorials/resources that treat this use case?

My droplet has LAMP with UBUNTU MYSQL on 16.04.

Hi

Go to the root directory of apache web server, as you have already installed LAMP.

1.cd /var/www/html/

2.Create directory

mkdir students

  1. inside students directory place you index.html file and set the permission to directory 755 and file permission 664

  2. Restart apaceh services and access your newly created directory using public ip address.

Do let me if it works for you.
