Apache PHP

Hi,

I installed php and apache. My site is working fine on GoDaddy but when i copied my public_html folder to /var/www/site1. It is not working. I have also changed the domain name to IP and accessing it via IP but it is not picking up. I can see the centos apache testing page. What could be the problem?

Hello,
Good to have you at digital ocean. Because all DO droplets are unmanaged, you need to setup the whole system yourself (if you didn’t use a app setup). So after you installed all the prerequisites (apache, php5-(cli,mysql) etc.) you need to configure them.
To get a website working, your server needs to handle the domain you would like to use. Apache does this, using VHOST configurations. I recently answered another topic about this, you can find more information there: LINK
If you got any more problems, I’ll be happy to answer your post here. If you got it working, please give a report here and a like :)
