LAMP on CentOS

Post by calande » 2007/05/07 01:28:24

I was searching on the web for LAMP on CentOS and on the wiki. I think it would be very nice to have a step-by-step guide to set up a centos LAMP server, in the wiki. Thanks in advance.

If you have specific questions ask in the forum.

Thanks, yes, indeed it's quite hard. I'm on this page: http://www.centos.org/docs/5/html/Deployment_Guide-en-US/ch-httpd.html
I tried to install Apache this way:

[code]# yum install apache[/code]

But YUM says it doesn't find anything. It's different from distro to distro, and it's a challenge to find out how to make things work. Do you know how I can install Apache first? (We'll see PHP later...)

TIA ;)

Try "yum install httpd", or "yum list | grep httpd" to see what other stuff you might want.

LAMP on CentOS

Ubuntu makes this one way too easy.

When you install Ubuntu Server, you have exactly two check boxes: DNS Server and/or LAMP.

But of course, once you boot, you can install whatever you want.

The headless server must come as quite a shock to the average GUI-dependent Ubuntu Desktop user. And no, [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synaptic]Synaptic[/url] doesn?t work from CLI.
