Replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain. Now add the following content into the file.

<VirtualHost *:80>  
    ServerName yourdomain.com
    Redirect permanent / https://yourdomain.com/
    TransferLog /var/log/httpd/yourdomain.com_access.log
    ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/yourdomain.com_error.log

<VirtualHost *:443>  
    ServerName yourdomain.com
    DocumentRoot /var/www/phabricator/phabricator/webroot
    ServerAdmin me@liptanbiswas.com
    SSLEngine On
    SSLCertificateFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/yourdomain.com/fullchain.pem
    SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/yourdomain.com/privkey.pem
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule ^/rsrc/(.*)     -                       [L,QSA]
    RewriteRule ^/favicon.ico   -                       [L,QSA]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$          /index.php?__path__=$1  [B,L,QSA]

    <Directory /var/www/phabricator/phabricator/webroot>
        AllowOverride All
        Require all granted
    TransferLog /var/log/httpd/yourdomain.com_ssl_access.log
    ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/yourdomain.com_ssl_error.log

In the above configuration change yourdomain.com to your actual domain.

Finally, restart the apache server and MariaDB to apply all the changes that we just configured. You can do so using the following commands.

systemctl restart httpd
systemctl restart mariadb

You will need to disable SELinux otherwise, Phabricator won't be able to connect to the database. To temporary disable SELinux without restarting the server, run the following command.

setenforce 0
