Adding a New Website to LAMP Stack on Ubuntu 22.04 with 5 steps.


Continuing with the series about LAMP Stack, in this article, AZDIGI will guide you on how to add a new website to the LAMP Stack on Ubuntu 22.04.

Conditions to be met:

  1. Ubuntu Server 22.04.
  2. Use Root privileges and install LAMP Stack
  3. The domain to be configured has been pointed to the server IP.

Implementation guide

Step 1: SSH into the server

To upgrade the ProFTPD version on DirectAdmin, we first need to SSH or access your VPS/server with root privileges. If you don’t know how to SSH into your VPS/Server, you can refer to the following tutorial:

Step 2: Create a folder to save the website

For example, in this article, I will do a demo with the website lamp.azdigi.space, the structure will be as follows:

Note: Remember to change lamp.azdigi.space to your website.

  • Create a folder to save website data
AZDIGI Tutorial
sudo mkdir -p /var/www/lamp.azdigi.space/public_html

  • Assign User permissions and read and write permissions to the website folder, here I set it as www-data
AZDIGI Tutorial
sudo chown www-data:www-data /var/www/lamp.azdigi.space/public_html
sudo chmod -R 755 /var/www
  • Create content for the website

I will quickly create an index.html file for the website.

AZDIGI Tutorial
 sudo nano /var/www/lamp.azdigi.space/public_html/index.html

Enter the content below and save.

    <title>Welcome to LAMP Stack</title>
    <h1>Success! lamp.azdigi.space virtual host is working!</h1>

Step 3: Create a Virtual Host for the new website

By default on the Apache server, the Virtual Host file will be 000-default.conf and located at /etc/apache2/sites-available/. So when you add a new website to Apache, you need to create a Virtual Host file for that website with the same configuration as the default file.

  • Copy the contents of the default Virtual Host file to the new Virtual Host file.
AZDIGI Tutorial
sudo cp /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf /etc/apache2/sites-available/lamp.azdigi.space.conf
  • Edit the content of the new Virtual Host file.
AZDIGI Tutorial
sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/lamp.azdigi.space.conf

Next, you add the content below:

    ServerName lamp.azdigi.space
    ServerAlias www.lamp.azdigi.space

Then you edit the 2 lines below into the email information and website path created earlier (Step 2: Create a folder to save the website)

ServerAdmin kiendt@azdigi.com
DocumentRoot /var/www/lamp.azdigi.space/public_html
  • Activate the new Virtual Host configuration
AZDIGI Tutorial
sudo a2ensite lamp.azdigi.space.conf
Add a new website to LAMP Stack on Ubuntu 22.04
  • Disable default Virtual Host configuration and restart Apache
AZDIGI Tutorial
sudo a2dissite 000-default.conf
sudo apache2ctl configtest
sudo systemctl restart apache2

Step 4: Install SSL for the website

To make your website secure and look more professional, you should install SSL. And I will install SSL through the Cerbot automated tool with the following commands:

  • Install Cerbot Apache
AZDIGI Tutorial
sudo apt install -y certbot python3-certbot-apache
  • Allow ‘Apache Full’ through the firewall to use both HTTP & HTTPS
AZDIGI Tutorial
sudo ufw allow 'Apache Full'
  • Install SSL for website
AZDIGI Tutorial
sudo certbot --apache -d lamp.azdigi.space
root@ubuntu-2204:~# sudo certbot --apache -d lamp.azdigi.space
Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log
Enter email address (used for urgent renewal and security notices)
