  4. SIMULATION

    A junior system administrator had trouble installing and running an Apache web server on a Linux server. You have been tasked with installing the Apache web server on the Linux server and resolving the issue that prevented the junior administrator from running Apache.

    INSTRUCTIONS

    Install Apache and start the service. Verify that the Apache service is running with the defaults.
    Typing “help” in the terminal will show a list of relevant commands.
