Apache is a very common webserver which you can easily add to your Lando app by adding an entry to the services top-level config in your Landofile.

Supported versions

Patch versions

Not officially supported!

While we allow users to specify patch versions for this service they are not officially supported so if you use one YMMV.

To use a patch version you can do something like this:

    type: apache:2.4.33

But make sure you use one of the available patch tags for the underlying image we are using.


Here are the configuration options, set to the default values, for this service. If you are unsure about where this goes or what this means we highly recommend scanning the services documentation to get a good handle on how the magicks work.

Also note that the below options are in addition to the build steps and overrides that are available to every service.

    type: apache:2.4
    webroot: .
    ssl: false
      server: SEE BELOW
      vhosts: SEE BELOW

Using custom Apache config files

The default config files depend on how you have set ssl but are all available here.

Note that if you set config to use your own files then those files should exist inside your applicaton and be expressed relative to your project root as below.

A hypothetical project

Note that you can put your configuration files anywhere inside your application directory. We use a config directory in the below example but you can call it whatever you want such as .lando.

|-- config
   |-- default.conf
   |-- httpd.conf
|-- docroot
   |-- index.html
|-- .lando.yml

Landofile using custom apache config

    type: apache
    webroot: docroot
      server: config/httpd.conf
      vhosts: config/default.conf

Custom .htaccess-Lando

In some cases, you may want Apache to behave differently when running in Lando than in other environments. If you are using the default httpd.conf shipped with Lando, you can include a .htaccess-lando next to your normal .htaccess file. Note: If you include this file, the default .htaccess won't be loaded in Lando, so be sure to copy over the relevant rules to your .htaccess-lando file.
