LinuxJournal: Installing and Configuring Apache, PHP and MySQL




Recently, I was looking for a calendar system that would allow me to keep track of events, appointments, and project dates. Quite a few of the
applications that I looked at were written in PHP and used a database to keep track of events. Since I had already planned on configuring an extra
computer for use as a web server, I figured that it wouldn’t be much more work to add PHP and MySQL to it. This article covers my experiences of
installing all the components and getting everything running.

“I wanted to use the latest stable versions of Apache, PHP, and MySQL so I uninstalled the existing Apache package and downloaded the sources for
Apache 1.3.12 and PHP 4.0.3 along with the binaries for MySQL 3.22.32.”
