How To Install HTMLy on Ubuntu 18.04 with LAMP

HTMLy is a unique blogging tool. Its big advantage is that it works without a database. It allows you to create and manage content using flat files. To carry out this installation, you will need a VPS with a preinstalled Linux distribution – Ubuntu 18.04, and also LAMP (there is an option to choose from on Hostry servers).

The website files in most LAMP stack configurations are located in the /var/www/html/ directory. Log into your server and then you need to run the following commands:

cd /var/www/html/
rm -rf index.php logo.png

After that, it is mandatory to check for the latest HTMLy updates

Given the following url, replace YOUR_VERSION_NUMBER with the version number you want to use:

Customizing HTMLy

To download the HTMLy setup file, you need to run the following command:

chown www-data:www-data -R .

After successfully loading HTLMy, when you go to the page

How To Fix

First, you need to navigate to the next Apache2 file to change the way Apache handles URLs. This can be done using the following command:

nano /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/http.conf

What you need to look like is:

<Directory /var/www/html/>
     Options -Indexes
     Require all granted

Then you need to replace with what is provided below (just copy and paste):

<Directory /var/www/html>
            Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
            AllowOverride All
            Order allow,deny
            allow from all

Finally, after successfully completing the previous step, you need to enable a2enmod. This can be done with the following command:

a2enmod rewrite

After that, restarting the Apache2 service is mandatory

service apache2 restart
