Apache + PHP + MySQL on Linux Guide

Recommended Posts

This guide is to help everyone setup a simple webserver with mysql and php support. I must admit that I'm also making this guide for myself. I forget how to setup everything correctly on different builds. Hopefully you will learn something from this article as I have. The Distro used is Lycoris (Reviewed Here). Everything is compiled from the source. This is the way it should be, don't worry about RPMs. This will be as simple as possible. I made it step by step, and I threw in some pics as well.

i looked into lycoris, but it seemed i had to buy it, is this correct? or is it a free d/l ?

I found that a installing apache, mysql (newest version) and php, on windows 98 was quite difficult, as it would give me a rough time. Does this seem easier? Right now I'm using phptriad, easiest install ever and works like a charm. I think it may even run on linux, check it out. apache 1.2 (I thought 2.0 to be very unstable on 98se), php 4.1.1 and mySql 3.23, is what this version is running.

From what I can gather from the article, and I'm a real noob w/Linux, this is very straight forward and simple, relatively speaking. Anytime you are working with something foreign to you, there will be hiccups. Although I have heard of Lycoris, the only reading I have done is on Mandrake and Redhat. I'm pretty confident that this would translate well to any of the OS's.

it all comes down to the gui... the easier it is to navigate and get things done, the more popular and useful it becomes.. Now don't get me wrong, i miss DOS more than anything, but as far as linus is conserned instead of pumping out new distros they should concentrate on the gui.

whenever you cant find a linux distro for download (they have to be for download, its part of the GPL) goto www.linuxiso.org

I loved DOS... but I have gotten so used to a GUI, i feel i will have a problem picking up the linux command line. I'm just so used to a GUI.

Hey, I cut my teeth writing batch files, but I do love the gui. Just gettin' lazy, I guess.

the problem is linux's main ground is the server market where bells and whistles dont matter. true that linux can be for the desktop but its just not making enough money from making it look fancy. the cash is in the performance. as far as bells and whistles, KDE 3.0.4 is great, im running it on my debian system and its stable as windows. and you can customize the interface soo much.

I liked lycoris because it very much resembles windows.. aids in acclimatng yourself to the Linux system.
