  • Apache (Web Server)
  • Mod_SSL (Secure Server Layer)
  • OpenSSL (Toolkit for SSL)
  • MySQL (SQL Database Server)
  • PHP (Scripting Language)
  • RSAref (Encryption for U.S. citizens) - search for at http://ftpsearch.lycos.com
The exact versions we used were: Apache 1.3.12, Mod_SSL 2.6.4-1.3.12, OpenSSL 0.9.5a, MySQL 3.22.32, PHP 4.0.0, and RSAref20.tar. We expect that the following procedures may be followed for future and past versions of these packages and will try to keep this tutorial updated.

Download all tar file sources to a temporary directory. Make sure you put them somewhere with plenty of space. You should download them as root to avoid permissions problems.

If you'd like a quick and easy way to install your server, check out Ralph I. Zeller's tutorial on how to use RPMs. Thanks Ralph!
