Create Database

Let us begin with creating a Database and a user. We will then grant the required privileges to the user so it can interact with the Database.

mysql -u root



GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON crowncloud.* TO 'crowncloud'@'localhost';



The above commands will give complete access to the user crowncloud. Replace YOUR-PASSWORD-HERE with a safe and secure password.

Configuring Apache vHost

Create a new folder named Microweber CMS under the public folder.

mkdir -p /var/www/html/Microweber

Create a new apache configuration file for the domain with the following command:

vi /etc/httpd/conf.d/

Add the following codes:

<VirtualHost *:80>

DocumentRoot /var/www/html/Microweber

<Directory /var/www/html/Microweber/>
    Options -Indexes +FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride All

ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/
CustomLog /var/log/httpd/ combined


Change with Your Domain Name.

Now, press the Esc key, and type in :wq! and press the Enter key to save and exit the file.

Now, restart & check the apache with the following commands:

systemctl restart httpd

systemctl status httpd
