Thanks , it’s working now.

You may also start apache using a GUI via Yast -> System -> System Services (Runlevel ).

Notice that while the command “service” is supported (redirected), the proper way to start apache if you boot in systemd (the default now) would be:

# systemctl start apache2.service


# systemctl status apache2.service

Similarly, you can enable or disable the service with:

# systemctl enable apache2.service
# systemctl disable apache2.service
