    Haha LogFormat is an invalid configuration command according to ApacheGUI in mod_log_conf Funny apache doesn’t register any errors.
    Error message abound.
    Tree view seems broken

    I don’t see the benefit, all configurations shown is a web based notepad.

    About the only thing it has is hover over links to the apache documentation, its not even in-line help like sublime, phpstorm or etc.

    Logs are no better than standard GREP over ssh.
    Control can’t retrieve extended info, and won’t tell me how to fix it.
    Global Settings “Sorry, an error has occured” WOW very helpful
    Mime Types “Sorry, an error has occured” WOW very helpful
    Virtual hosts /etc/apache2/conf.d/apache2-manual? conf (No such file or directory)
    Add virtual hosts gets stuck Loading Active Files
    History ditto virtual hosts error.

    I am like a newbie network admin, for the time being I am following your this tutorial for a gui for my apache server. But, I wanted to ask about webmin or plesk or the puppet for apache gui configurations.

    Can Anyone please point out which one is the best among the webmin, plesk, puppet or the ApacheGui explained in this tutorial..


    • Ravi Saive says:


      I worked with Webmin as well as on Plesk, but ApacheGUI seems much easier to configure Apache configuration like creating Vhosts, etc..

    • Matei Cezar says:

      The most flexible way to manage your server is through command line. If you truly need a GUI to manage Apache web server then ApacheGui represents a tool especially crafted for Apache, unlike the other you’ve mentioned which are serve multiple purposes.

    Nice post. To the point and crisp. Keep up the good work.


  9. Matei Cezar says:

    Make sure that /etc/init.d/apache-gui file has execution permission ( chmod +x /etc/init.d/apache-gui ) and start the service from root account or a system user with root privileges.
    Also make sure that the file has the same content as presented on above excerpt ( file comments are important here)

    friend error

    env: /etc/init.d/apache-gui: Permiso denegado

    Failed to start LSB: Start the apache-gui.
