About this Hands-on Lab

In this lab, you will become familiar with using the ‘systemd’ management system to work with your system’s services and daemons.

Learning Objectives

Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:

Service Started

The Apache web server is installed on this server for use. The service should be running at the time of grading.

Site Displays

The Apache web server default page will display if the service is started. We have deployed in /var/www/html a custom ‘index.html’ that displays simple text to test for.

Additional Resources

You are working with the development team that your group of administrators supports. They are ready to begin deploying their new web based API to the Apache server, but they are unable to verify that it is running.

During their last update, some changes were made to the Apache server configuration file and the server was then restarted. Once it came back up, web requests to it were not answered and they are unable to continue their work.

You have been asked to troubleshoot the server and determine why the web service is not responding. Checking the status of the web service and associated log output should point you in the right direction in resolving the issue.
