How to Install Apache, MariaDB, PHP7 (LAMP) on openSUSE Leap 15


This is my first test installing LAMP on OpenSUSE Leap 15. I know that OpenSUSE 15 leap has moved to firewalld instead of SuSEfirewall2, the rest I think will stay the same.

My  environment:

The server is OpenSUSE 15



Let’s start.

How to Install Apache, MariaDB, PHP7 (LAMP) on openSUSE Leap 15

Install   Apache

Enable and Start Apache :

Apr 18 16:04:04 suse15 systemd[1]: Started The Apache Webserver.
lines 1-16/16 (END)

Add  apache  to the Firewall rules and  reload the firewall to activate the rule :

Create Home page : 

Find Document Root directory

Create index page :

cd /srv/www/htdocs/
echo “<h1>This is Apache OpenSUSE Leap 15. from Osradar team</h1>” > index.html
