I was wondering if i may mirror this page and translate it to dutch.
Of course with al the copyrights and stuff.
Please mail me what you think of it.

Nice article, with good explanations...
I just wanted to say that you really don't need a heavy server if you use PHP on a LAN. It just depends on the use : if only five people at a time use the PHP pages, then you will have no performance problems on a P166 with 64 MB RAM. So it just depends on how many concurrent users there are.

by the way, the translation to dutch is done now...

Why exactly do you need the --enable-rule=SHARED_CORE option?
I understaind that this makes apache a DSO on itself, so that other apps can include it? I've compiled Apache with PHP 4.3 without this option, and it seems to work too...

Last remark...

Here is a good description of Apache 2.x with PHP 4.3:

After serching a long time in the I-Net to find any tutorial like this, helping beginners to understand Unix/Linux Systems, I found this page.
After installing lots of times other stuff and beeing angry, because nothing goes write, I found this page.
Thanks to the Author Sascha Blum, this tutorial works perfect.
I have a SuSE Linux 8.0 and it works. Now I can smile.

Good work!!!

Hola a todos
Esta muy bien el tutorial , no tuve problemas al instalar el servidor lamp, solo una observacion falta poner la liga para bajar el archivo libpng en la seccion de "Qué necesitas y los fuentes a bajar" ya que cuando iva siguiendo las instrucciones a la hora de instalar libpng no tenia el archivo fuente, bueno solo es eso
gracias y adios

Mil gracias por el tutorial,es un gran trabajo.Les cuento que me funciona muy bien el servidor apache y cuando pruebo php con http://localhost/info.php me muestra correctamente.El motor Mysql funciona bien puesto que con webmin he podido crear bases de datos y tablas perfectamente;sinembargo cuando trato de conectarme a Mysql con PHP no me aparece nada en el visor de HTML y no puedo crear ninguna base de datos desde alli.por ejemplo el siguiente script no me crea ninguna base de datos ni me devuelve ningun mensaje en la pantalla.Agradezco que alguien
me colabore ayudando a encrontrar el problema....
Previamente con Webmin he creado el usuario lorivera y su password=lemmcris2 .Este archivo lo he editado y llamado data1.php
y cuando jecuto httpd://localhost/data1.php
el resultado es que no se muestra ningun mensaje en pantalla de error
ni de successfully

$link = mysql_pconnect ("localhost", "lorivera", "lemmcris2") {
or die ("Could not connect");
if (mysql_create_db ("my_db")) {
print ("Database created successfully\n");
} else {
printf ("Error creating database: %s\n", mysql_error ());

This page is truely useful and helpful to me.
From: Roy Morales <moralesroy(at)> [ date: 2006-01-27 ]
Hey this page is great, Thank you, really.
Are you thinking about updating it on new Fedora versions (4.0) and the new versions of the PHP, MySQL, etc? It would be perfect.
From: Raul [ date: 2006-07-26 ]
Simplemente quería agradecer al autor del tutorial su magnífica labor. Es cierto que hay muchos manuales, tutoriales y "how to" en la red, pero pocos son tan claros y detallados como éste.

Soy un auténtico profano en el mundillo Unix/Linux y siempre que he intentado acercarme a él me he encontrado con documentación confusa y no apta para principiantes.

Es una verdadera gozada encontrarse con guías así.

Un saludo y de nuevo gracias!

Muy bueno, excelente muy bien explicado, los link ya no funcionan, sería buena idea si alguien pudiera actualizarlo,

It's a very good tutorial. I'm a php programmer and never found such a good tutorial regarding installation. The step by step methodolgy fascinates me.
