Apache setup help?


I could use some help getting apache 2 setup. Can anybody walk me through the starting process and how to get it setup for PHP/MySQL?

How about reading apache's and php's
excellent documentation, starting on the
process and coming back to ask when you
have fallen over something? :)


Cheers,
Tink

I don't want your negitive comments. I asked a question because there isn't any documentation on how to run apache on Mandrake Linux. Mandrake has it preinstalled, along with php/mysql, but I don't know where to find it or how to activate it because it's different then normal installation you would do by downloading it.

tinkster is right, there is a lot of documentation on the apache site, and elsewhere.

but you might want to try the 'which' command, ie 'which httpd' (name for apache on *nix platforms). To start apache you can probably use 'apachectl start'. I run slackware so im not sure how it is on mandrake but my config files are in /etc/apache, my web is in /var/www and in this directory there is also a huge manual which is a good place to start off.reading

Apache is apache, there will always be a default way of doing stuff and then distro's will add their own way, but the way to setup and configure is all the same mainly, one file. Its not negative for Tinkster to ask you to read some howto's and documents, search the web. This site isn't intended to rewrite howto's or novels per se when the answers are already out there.

This site is more along the lines of specific questions as its a FREE site where the members answer your questions also for FREE in their own spare time. So be a little considerate when asking your questions please, most that come here don't have the time to write full and complete guides for generic and such vague questions.

Regards.

Look ... I wasn't negative at all.
You were being lazy.

And since you claim to be experienced

why don't you just do a
locate httpd\.conf
locate php\.conf
and be done with it?

Lets not let this get personal guys.. I agree Tinkster was not being negative, be happy you got a reply but lets not resort to making accusations please, it will only make matters worse.

Thanks.
