Can't configure LAMP

Hi everyone! My teacher told me to install lamp for my code course at college. Well, it worked using the package available in the aur but somehow I can’t configure it. I found the tutorial in this forum, but I’m stuck and have no Idea how to move forward.

These are the commands I run:

sudo pacman -Syyu
sudo pacman -S apache
sudo nano /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
sudo systemctl enable httpd

And all of them seemed to work well, bu I got this message when I run
sudo systemctl status httpd

× httpd.service - Apache Web Server
     Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/httpd.service; enabled; preset: disabled)
     Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Fri 2022-09-16 00:28:02 -05; 3s ago

set 16 00:28:02 snakepit systemd[1]: httpd.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.

I hope anybody has an idea on how to fix this. Thanks!

Since you made changes to httpd.conf , make sure you use only one Multi-Processing Module. Apache supports 3 (prefork, worker or event), choose only one.
If you want to use php, choose prefork.

LAMP is an acronym for

Linux Apache Mysql Php

Arch based distributions use Mariadb instead of mysql.

So your teacher tells you to create a webserver deployment using the mentoioned components.

So your assignments going forward will likely require you to have a functional setup.

Given the nature of Manjaro you will likely want to use a virtual machine to create a similiar environment.

If your teacher/tutor is like the most they will be referring to an Ubuntu setup.

You can create such setup in a virtual machine using virtualbox and a server version of the Ubuntu distribution.

Thanks! I’m going to check it out so I can fix it

Yes, he told me to use Ubuntu instead. Right now we’re only using NetBeans so I’m not missing anything, and I’m installing Ubuntu on VM to use lamp, but I’d like to use it in Manjaro too.

You can setup the stack on Manjaro.

For an educational environment requires stability, predicatablity and a one to one reference of the material used in your education.

Manjaro does not provide such environment - it is fundamentally different from Ubuntu - so stay with the virtual machine approach - it will serve the purpose just fine.
