I've been trying to install qgis-server (2.14) on Ubuntu 14 (64-bit) using instructions from the the qgis-server installation instructions and tips from this question. All the packages install, I can access the Apache landing page and qgis-server is listed as an active service. However the api call below does not work. A call to the cgi-bin directory also doesn't work.


Does anyone know if there are extra steps needed outside the steps outlined in the docs?

It seems like the order of my installation was wrong. Running

sudo apt-get install apache2 libapache2-mod-fcgid

Before running

sudo apt-get install qgis-server

seemed to get QGIS-Server working. Alternatively, the web-client git actually has an install.sh file that seems to run the install commands needed to get QGIS-Server working with a front end. (I'm saying seems a lot because I haven't definitively tested these observations)
