Setting Up LAMP Server on Mint


This is just a quick addendum to my previous post on how to set up a LAMP Server.

I’m now using Linux Mint, and I followed those instructions only to encounter a mild but persistent irritation. For some reason, the default behaviour in Mint is to read your website starting at /var/www/html/[whatever], rather than just at /var/www/[whatever] like a normal person.

To fix this, go to /etc/apache2/sites-available and change the DocumentRoot line in all files to the appropriate directory. I changed all the files because I don’t know the difference between the two… and it worked so whatever.

Now my website is up and running again! Huzzah!
