HomePHP Page 2 - The Soothingly Seamless Setup of Apache, SSL, MySQL, and PHP
Assumptions - PHP
The much anticipated update to our original article on getting Apache, MySQL, Mod_SSL, and PHP to work seamlessly with each other is finally here! Ever try to get Apache, Mod_SSL, PHP, and MySQL all working in harmony on the same box? It's a very difficult task, but article author Israel Denis Jr. has come up with detailed instructions for compiling all these and getting them working together seamlessly to make the killer server software system.
We assume that you have the following already installed on your system.
Perl (Preferably version 5+)
gzip or gunzip
gcc and GNU make
If you don't have these installed, you will need to take the necessary steps to get them installed before any of the procedures in this document will make sense.
Prior programming knowledge is not required, however we assume that you are somewhat computer literate. You will also need a basic understanding of UNIX commands, HTML, and SQL. You should have a basic understanding of how to administer your Linux box. You will need a fully working Linux box on which you will install the software. Of course you'll need the necessary software packages listed above to compile the source code. Lastly, be sure that you don't already have MySQL, Apache, or PHP pre-installed on your Linux box.
