Reload or Restart

Remember the command to control services is "service". So to
start apache

  service httpd start

stop apache
  service httpd stop

reload apache
  service httpd reload
Sometimes you will make configuration changes which contain an error. When you use the service command sometimes these errors are not shown. If you think there is an error you can use the following command to check for syntax errors:
  service httpd configtest

SELinux and Apache

You need to take care in the distributions which run SELinux protection. For security reasons allowing the apache user to read files is not sufficient to allow files to be accessible from the web. In particular our experiments all put files into directories under /home/username/public_html/, and the SELinux security of those directories is quite strong.

When publishing documents from a user's public_html directory, you must run the following SELinux command:

setsebool -P httpd_read_user_content 1
This is only needed where the httpd_read_user_content is currently 0. You can check the current value using:
getsebool  httpd_read_user_content
Note that setsebool can take tens-of-seconds to run, and it needs to recompile all SELinux rules and then reload them into the kernel. Be patient.

The filename context type must also be set to httpd_user_content_t. However this should happen automatically for any file you create in the public_html directory. If you are having real problems you can check the context using the following example (which is dealing with a file called index.html):

> ls -Z index.html
-rw-rw-r--. gordon users  unconfined_u:object_r:httpd_user_content_t:s0 index.html
If you discover the type is not "httpd_user_content_t" you can easily set it by doing the following:
chcon -t httpd_user_content_t index.html
However it is very very unlikely you will have to do the chcon to fix your apache server unless you have been doing something really really strange.
