Hello all,

I just installed apache2 and I am a liite bit confused, because when I type http://localhost/ it opens http://localhost/apache2-default/ ! How can I change this behaviour? Thanks in advance

I recently struggled setting up Apache 2 myself, and had the same problem.

Under, /etc/apache2/sites-enabled, there should be a file maybe called 000-default. Open that in an editory and look for the part that says:

        <Directory /var/www/>
               Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
               AllowOverride None
               Order allow,deny
               allow from all
               # This directive allows us to have apache2's default start page
               # in /apache2-default/, but still have / go to the right place
               RedirectMatch ^/$ /apache2-default/
Should be as simple as just commenting this part out, and then restarting apache2.
RedirectMatch ^/$ /apache2-default/
Is the main line that causes your situation to happen.
