Question Any totally newbie websites?


Hi everybody,

My first day as a Red Hat user and I cant manage to do anything

Are there any websites out there that will guide me through STEP BY STEP on setting up and installing APACHE, MySQL, PHP?

So far I like what I see with Red Hat, lets just hope I get on with it!!!

Thanks in advance.

ale1981,

Check out the "library" at this site. NOT specific to Red Hat, but as as a "newbie" I found it helpful.

Thanks Old Bob.

Do you suggest that if I am only going to be using linux as a webserver that I just install the basics at installation and then download apache, mysql, php myself?

I was thinking of doing a totally newbie website. Would people need to have such websites? Well if I ever get it going I'll post it here. Try searching google for some newbie webisites. Or you could search LQs to find if some one has had the same problem or difficulty. Or if you are having trouble doing a specific thing than maybe you could ask it in this forum.

bolinux,

Do you remember the "soft cover" Windows manuals published by Que ???

They had one operation [ Create folder, copy file, etc....] on each page, with LOTS of pictures.

This is how I learned Windows [after 10 years of MS-DOS & GWBasic] and would like to find a "similar" manual for Linux.

The thing is that there are so many different distros that creating one basic manual would be very tough. It would work though if I could do one distro and then another person could do another I think that could work. The project can be freely availible on the internet but we could also offer a printed copy that we could sell on http://www.amazon.com .

PS I don't remember the windows manuals.

Anyone for RUTE?

It's not distro specific so is usable by everyone.

The Linux Cookbook is pretty good. It's not distro specific. Doesn't go into a lot of detail but, I found it useful when I first started using linux.

Here's a good reference for you:

http://www.mc.man.ac.uk/LDP/LDP/intr...tml/index.html

Here's an example:
http://www.mc.man.ac.uk/LDP/LDP/intr...ect_03_03.html

Edit: Uh... I'm not sure it goes into httpd, msyql, etc., but it is a good guide for the underlying linux.

Rute, referenced above may be a better choice for what you are looking for.

Example:
