How To Install Apache on Linux Mint 19

Install Apache on Linux Mint 19

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Apache on Linux Mint 19. For those of you who didn’t know, Apache is the most popular and most used HTTP web server in the world. Apache is an open-source, cross-platform, powerful, stable, reliable, and free web server providing features that can be extended by a wide variety of modules.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of Apache on a Linux Mint 19 (Tricia) server.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Linux Mint 19 (Tricia).
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install Apache on Linux Mint 19

Step 1. Before running the tutorial below, it’s important to make sure your system is up to date by running the following apt commands in the terminal:

sudo apt update

Step 2. Install Apache webserver.

Apache is already available in Linux Mint default software repositories:

sudo apt install apache2

Once you have completed the installation, run:

sudo systemctl start apache2.service
sudo systemctl enable apache2.service

Step 3. Configure Firewall.

After installing Apache it is necessary to modify UFW firewall rules to open HTTP and HTTPS ports. Run the following command:

sudo ufw allow 'Apache Full'

To verify changes run the following command:

$ sudo ufw status

Status: active
To                         Action      From
--                         ------      ----
22/tcp                     ALLOW       Anywhere
Apache Full                ALLOW       Anywhere
22/tcp (v6)                ALLOW       Anywhere (v6)
Apache Full (v6)           ALLOW       Anywhere (v6)

Step 4. Verify Apache Installation.

Apache2 serves any files for your website from /var/www/html the directory. Open your favorite browser and open the below URL to verify Apache installation:
