Question Better than webmin???


Hi

Does anyone know if there is a better remote software for RH8.0 other than Webmin?

I have problems using Webmin to configure RH8.0. By default, I have installed all the stuff like php, php-server,mysql,apache,openssl,mod_ssl, etc from RH8.0 disk. Running Webmin and using the software packages to upgrade the existing version. Everytime I use the rpmfind.net to search for new upgrades for php, php-server, mysql, etc I will encounter error with the dependencies. It always says Failed dependencies test and showing the items that were failed.

But if I use the source of php,php-server,mysql, apache to install, I will have the error when trying to access mysql as it will say that cannot connect the socket and referring to the /tmp/mysql.sock whereas the mysql.sock is located in /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock.

I have ran the mysql_install_db and checked the path for my.cnf and it is located at /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock.

When I install from source, the Webmin will not be able to execute apache, mysql which has the features. Also, I will not be able to upgrade.

So, does anyone know if there is a better remote software I can use? Or do you have a solution?

Regards
Edward Han

Have you managed to get PHP to connect to MySQL OK? Are you still having the issues that were the subject of your previous threads?

Yes. I am still having lot of problems with the connection. I have re-installed a zillion times and still unable to get it working. Very tired and frustrated. Been reading up the doc for mysql and php. But still can't get it working.

Check and confirm that php is working fine as I can view phpinfo and run php stuff. I have just downloaded the entire mysql 4.0.15 like shared, client, server, devel, etc. as rpm and using Webmin to install them. But still can't work!

Any suggestion?

RedHat 8 is not hard to get a working Apache/MySQL/PHP install out of the box. I did a test install of it here.

During RedHat install, just after you set the root password and creat a user account, you'll be offered the opportunity to customise the set of packages to be installed by way of a radio button. Then you'll have a package group selection screen.

Check Webserver box (obviously)

Then, towards the bottom of that screen you'll find a checkbox for "Select individual packages". Check it, and click next.

Then, through the document tree on the left, make sure the following packages are selected for installation... (don't un-check anything)

Development / Languages
php
php-imap
php-ldap
php-mysql

Applications / Databases
mysql
mysql-devel
mysql-server

Then click next and complete the RH8 installation.

Sorry I can't help you really with your current install as I really can't tell what you're up to or what you may have installed/uninstalled/configured/unconfigured, whatever. But I do know that the above will get it working.
