GeoHelm Apache HTTP Server Page

The Apache WebServer (HTTP) module is provided by Webmin.


This page will cover installation, stopping and starting Apache WebServer, and troubleshooting.

Apache WebServer is not one of the components installed by GeoHelm.

However, as detailed in the installation guides, you must install the Apache WebServer prior to installing GeoHelm


To do so, simply click on Unused Modules > Apache WebServer and then click the "Install" button as shown below.

This is required as GeoHelm installs an HTTP proxy entry for GeoServer and/or GeoExplorer.

Click on Servers > Apache Webserver in the left menu.

In the top left corner, click the "Stop" button to stop Apache.

Once stopped, the button will become a "Start" button.

To restart Apache, click the "Apply Changes" button in the top right corner.
