CenturyLink Cloud Web server application offers a reliable, high-performance, and secure vehicle for delivery HTTP content to end users. Here's how to create a managed Apache environment in CenturyLink Cloud.

**NOTE**: Before you can deploy Managed Tomcat, you must create a Managed Red Hat server.

1. Log on to the [Control Portal]( Using the left side navigation bar, click on **Orchestration** > **Blueprints Library**. Click on the “CLC Managed Apache Httpd OpenSSL and Web” Blueprint.NOTE: Before you can deploy Managed Tomcat, you must create a Managed Red Hat server.


2. Click on the "Deploy Blueprint" button.


3. Fill out the appropriate details for the CLC Managed Apache Httpd OpenSSL and Web Blueprint.

**NOTE** Please choose the same server for both the Installation and Registration of Managed Apache. This server must have Managed Red Hat installed, otherwise the Blueprint will fail.

Ensure that the appropriate services that are included within Apache are installed i.e., HTTPD & PHP version.


4. Verify the information is correct (pictured below).


5. Once verified, please click on the 'deploy blueprint' button. You will be presented with the deployment details along with an email stating the Blueprint has been queued.
