Apache PHP and MySql newbie

Postby shane » 2006-11-19 04:47

I have been looking around for some form a tutorial on install apache, php, and mysql and I have yet to find something that meets the needs of a beginner such as myself. I just up and decided about a week ago that I wanted to start learning and I have some ebook but the installations are mostly for Windows based systems.

So if anyone could point me into a good direction for someone who has little experiance with linux and no experiance with apache, php, and mysql.

Some type of an installation tutorial would be great.

Please let me know if you require anymore information.

Thank you

This is Debian. How about:
Code: Select all
apt-get install apache2 php5 mysql-server-5.0 mysql-client-5.0

You have got to be kidding me it can't seriously be that easy.... Though is there any documentation on setting it up. Maybe a "How not to break it once ive got it set up" :D

Thank you very much Tina.

Sure it is :) The APT package management system is really what makes Debian so easy to use. You should look through the APT HOWTO. You'll be amazed of how powerfull it is.

Thank you very much Tina.

This is a great site (it's for Sarge though):

As for documentation, the man pages is a good place to start, and you can also have a look under /usr/share/doc/. And of course the programs online manuals (apache.org, mysql.com etc).

Heh one more quick question while I am stil here. When I start apache I get the following message.

Starting web server (apache2)...apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.1.1 for ServerName.

Any idea what file this would be located in?
