Laravel Homestead with Apache only

August 1, 2020 ≈ 20 seconds

In Laravel Homestead you can specify apache as site type, but nginx still would be the default web server. To switch, you should run the 'flip' command every time, you want to use apache. What if you only need apache as default?


First, delete nginx completely:


sudo apt-get purge nginx nginx-common

After make apache2 autoload, so it runs every time you 'vagrant up' (homestead up):


sudo update-rc.d apache2 enable
