Enable Apache Service
To start your service at boot in http, you can run this command:

Restart Apache Service
you can restart your serviceon http by:

The output of server that we can’t run yet
● httpd.service - Apache Web Server Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/httpd.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled) Active: inactive (dead)
Output of sample server that is ready to use:
● httpd.service - Apache Web Server Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/httpd.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled) Active: active (running) since Tue 2016-02-16 13:00:18 IST; 7s ago Main PID: 1067 (httpd) Tasks: 82 (limit: 512) CGroup: /system.slice/httpd.service ├─1067 /usr/bin/httpd -k start -DFOREGROUND ├─1070 /usr/bin/httpd -k start -DFOREGROUND ├─1071 /usr/bin/httpd -k start -DFOREGROUND └─1072 /usr/bin/httpd -k start -DFOREGROUND Feb 16 13:00:18 server systemd: Started Apache Web Server.

First, Let create a sample page in the Apache root directory. For Example: /srv/http.
Add the following line:
<html> <title>Welcome</title> <body> Welcome to OSTechNix test page </html>
Now, open your web browser and navigate to http://localhost or http://IP-address. You will be pleased with Apache server Test page.
To set Apache to start at boot:
sudo systemctl enable httpd.service
To make a backup:
cp /etc/httpd/conf/extra/httpd-mpm.conf ~/httpd-mpm.conf.backup
Before changing any configuration files, it is advised that you make a backup of the file.
MariaDB Or MySql
Run the following command to install MariaDB:
pi -S mysql
After you run the command above, you will be asked whether to install MariaDB or Percona server, just hit enter and then type “Y” and press enter again. The default selection i.e MariaDB will be installed on your KOOMPI OS and the output will be like this,
[[email protected] ~]$ sudo pacman -S mysql :: There are 2 providers available for mysql: :: Repository extra 1) mariadb :: Repository community 2) percona-server
You need to initialize the MariaDB data directory prior to starting the service. To do so, run:
sudo mysql_install_db --user=mysql --basedir=/usr --datadir=/var/lib/mysql
Then issue the following command to enable and start MariaDB service.
systemctl enable mysqld systemctl start mysqld
You can verify whether MariaDb is running or not using command:
systemctl status mysqld
Setup MySQL/MariaDB root user password
As you may know, It is recommended to setup a password for database root user.
Run the following command to setup MariaDB root user password:
MariaDB has been installed and ready to use. PHP
To install PHP in Arch Linux, run:
pi -S php php-apache
Then PHP is installed, we need to configure Apache PHP module.
To do so, edit
sudo nano /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
Find the following line and comment it out:
[...] #LoadModule mpm_event_module modules/mod_mpm_event.so [...]
Then, add the following lines at the bottom, Save and close the file.:
[...] LoadModule mpm_prefork_module modules/mod_mpm_prefork.so LoadModule php7_module modules/libphp7.so AddHandler php7-script php Include conf/extra/php7_module.conf
Now create a test.php file in the Apache root directory.
sudo nano /srv/http/test.php
Add the following lines:
<?php phpinfo(); ?>
Restart httpd service.
systemctl restart httpd
Open up your web browser and navigate to http://ip-address/test.php
