Apache install, for the newbie...


What is the easiest, most pain free way to install Apache and PHP? Im a giant newbie, and the only things i have ever installed on linux are Half-life server, mozilla and flash player 6. Is there a good tutorial that will explain the install of apache, at least, to me in language i can understand?

I would like it to explain what each portion i am doing does too

any help is appreciated! Thanks!

RPMs from your Mandrake (Apache will work out of the box) plus administration work using Webmin will do, I guess.

No, it's on the cds for sure. Don't remember which one, but when you insert them one by one and look into the directory with RPMs, you'll find Apache* RPM files. Double click on them and they will be installed.

Allthough rpm is easier (not by much) the best thing to do to learn is download the latest tar for Apache from apache.org. Then download the latest PHP tar from PHP.net.

now check out http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/install.html
for v 2.0

and for PHP support in Apache check this: -

http://www.php.net/manual/en/install.apache2.php

if you have any more problems post back or E-mail me and I'll try and answer any questions youve got.

hope this helps
