You guys should rather learn how to set up Apache, PHP and all the stuff
yourself, cuz Lamp is really not meant to run on a server, just to test stuff...
Anyway, running Lamp you'll never learn what the individual things do, so
maybe a request like:

"Full-featured Apache web server w/PHP,some database - CMS ready HOWTO"

would be better...

I've got my LAMP setup on my desktop machine for testing out websites I build. Works great so far. Now I'd just like to figure out if its possible to view them from somewhere other than my house. Perhaps your house!

Please read to the end! I said it is not recommended to run such instant
setups as a real server sollution! If you don't understand how Apache
works, you shouldn't be running it on your server before reading a
basic config howto!

In XAMP you get some verison of Apache which is not patched like the
Debian version (and probably not as stable). XAMP is a testing sollution for
ppl who don't want to run servers at home, but only want to test if their
site works before uploading it to some webhost.

Further to that, XAMP doesn't adhere to Debian policy. It is statically
compiled, you install it manually and it doesn't work if it's not in the
/opt folder. Debian policy is to put such things into /usr/local/ .

I use XAMP at home to test things, cuz I don't have the time nor nerves
to set up a server at home. But being that it's run as root, I run it on
a machine which is not online.

I now realized that I made a complete dork of myself and humbly
appologize. I mistook LAMP for XAMPP... Please ignore my former remarks.

:oops:

-How to find out whats actually causing your problem
-where to look for known bugs

Something along those lines. I'm just curious about the steps everyone takes when something isn't working as normal.


I second this one, but also a description of how to properly report a bug. This is a good way to help improve Debian without being an official part of the project.

the ultimate depository how-to

Postby Ulsak » 2007-11-10 07:53

First, I have to confess that Im surprised by the tolerant and kind atmosphere here. I'm an Ubuntu user and this forum shows "humanity to others" in the same proportions as Ubuntus..Thank you for that.

Right, I'm aware of the meaning of RTFM and I have also search through different postings, sites and docs and also found a few solutions.
Nevertheless, I would appreciate a throrough how-to the issue on depositories, sources.list and synaptic mechanisms

Debian based server how to for beginners

Postby _FOCUS_ » 2007-12-05 07:40

We decided to set up a web server for our work's web site. We have static ip net connection. I followed howto forge's how to set up etch server how to but I couldn't achieve make it run. I have not installed server before. This is my first try. So I don't realy know where I have to save my web page on a server and how. So that how to not good for me. Its only tell how to set up then nothing. I need more.

My other problem is that. I tried to make same my /etc/network/interfaces like in that howto.

Code: Select all
#allow-hotplug eth0
#iface eth0 inet dhcp
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
        address 192.168.0.100
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        network 192.168.0.0
        broadcast 192.168.0.255
        gateway 192.168.0.1

There are two ethernet deteched on pc which we worked on. So I press enter as debian chose eth1. So I made there change. But then my pc won't connect to net.

my interfaces config is;
Code: Select all
#allow-hotplug eth0
#iface eth0 inet dhcp
auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static
        address 192.168.0.100
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        network 192.168.0.0
        broadcast 192.168.0.255
        gateway 192.168.0.1



I want to a help or a good howto or book. Please help me. We will use in our server php pages and generally html pages.
If you love something, let it go. If it comes back to you, it's yours. If it's run over by a car, you don't want it.

web pages are kept in the www folder <find www>
Also, good practices: separate partitions for /var and I think another directory as well, and I'd mount the www folder on it's own partition too.

        gateway 192.168.0.1


depending on your static IP scope try:
Code: Select all
#allow-hotplug eth0
#iface eth0 inet dhcp
auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static
        address 192.168.0.101
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        network 192.168.0.0
        broadcast 192.168.0.255
        gateway 192.168.0.1

sorry to answer questions in the Howto section

Howto completely replace Nautilus

Postby Squirrel » 2008-01-13 05:53

I would like to know how I can completely get rid of Nautilus and replace it with Krusader.

I tried the script from http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/nonautilusplease but it did not work. I tried it with root, I tried it after stopping GDM and so forth. I spent some hourse to find a solution - no luck.

It would be great when somebody with the needed skills could take a look into that...

Thanks!

I am requesting a complete tutorial on how to setup ssh, connect to it, and run a GUI over the resulting connection. (i've got the first two parts down, but the third is causing me all sorts of headaches)

I would like to request a HOW-TO on how to set up (Open)LDAP, so I can use that as authentication for Apache, Subversion, Samba and possibly others.
If it also describes how to make it all secure, that would be awesome!
