This will show you the status of Apache and its process ID, as well as any error messages or warnings.
Configure Apache: The Apache configuration files are stored in the /etc/apache2 directory. You can use the sudo nano /etc/apache2/apache2.conf command to edit the main Apache configuration file, or you can use the sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf command to edit the default virtual host configuration.
With Apache installed, you can now start configuring it to serve your web content.
