I'm trying to install an apache server on my AWS instance, however, it seems that it doesn't have the apt package installed.
I googled and all I found was some broken links to this package. I am using Putty on a windows machine if that information helps.
I currently have low to none experience in linux enviroments.
I am running the following version of Linux
Linux ip-172-31-37-96 3.14.48-33.39.amzn1.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Jul 14 23:43:07 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
If you're using Amazon Linux it's CentOS-based, which is RedHat-based. RH-based installs use
apt-get. Something like
yum search httpd should show you the available Apache packages - you likely want
yum install httpd24.
