    Question Installing Apache, PHP, MySQL etc...


    I was wondering if anyone had a bookmark of a site that guides a n00b through installing Apache, PHP MySQL and whatever else on Linux 7.1 machine. Installing from source code seems understandable but it's as easy as "just running the setup file." Anyone know of a tutorial or RPM files I could use?

    thanks in advance.

    Hi, I see that you are new here, so please notice that Cross Posting is no good (I'm referring to your post in the Apache forum).
    Anyway, by Linux 7.1 do you mean Linux RedHat (the distro) 7.1?
    In this case you have the rpms on the CDs, do a simple search!
    Look at http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/l...install-guide/
    Then the Getting started guide http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/l...started-guide/

    and the customization (chapter about RPM) http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/l.../custom-guide/

    RH has a very good documentation, even if Mandrake and SuSE are IMHO easier.

    Julie Melonie has also made a good tutorial for this, which can be found at http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/...tw=programming

    My suggestion- start by installing the RPMs, given that you're on Redhat.

    Play around, get a site working, and then figure out how to install from source. It's not as bad as you may think, and it's a great learning experience.

    My biggest suggestion- keep all of the ./configure commands you use somewhere, whether you just put them into a text file or get more process-oriented and turn them into a makefile.

    I've created/edited a makefile that makes compiling apache with mod_perl and PHP easier, mostly because it applies a framework for it. I'd be willing to post it, along with my notes, if folks would like to see it.
