Fixing Apache Installation after Upgrade to Ubuntu 14.4

October 31, 2014

After an LTS upgrade, my Apache was no longer working. The new version of Apache came with two significant changes to the configuration file.

Virtual Hosts The filter for including hosts from /etc/apache2/sites-enabled had been updated to only match paths ending in the extension .conf. More about it here (see post by augustin from Sep 17).

Permissions outside of normal Document Root The default permissions had become more restrictive disallowing access outside the normal document root. More about it here (see post by Irve from May 22).
