Former Windows User getting a LAMP server up


Very Newbie with a fresh Fedora 12 install on a former Windows box. Am struggling with this rpm business while installing Apache php and mySQL. Would appreciate direction on which forum is best for working wiht this setup.

If you're using the RPM command directly, don't. You should be using yum (a front-end for RPM which handles dependency resolution and does a lot of other good stuff).

Have you tried Google yet -- I searched for "fedora 12 lamp" and this howtoforge tutorial was one of the first hits that came up. You might want to give it a look...

Also, on F12 you'd normally have a GUI, in which case there should an item like Add/Remove software in the menus.
As above, if you want to use the cmd line, use yum not rpm.

You could also try using pre bundled LAMP stacks like BitNami or XAMPP if you want to make your server up and running in minutes. Just download and install the package. It will install Apache, PHP, MySQL and configure them too.

DID you have a apache/mysql/php installed on windows???

if not i would recommend NOT using the prebuilt rpm's
and LEARN how to install it from the ground up

also Fedora IS NOT A GOOD CHOICE for a server
I am a LONG time user of fedora and UNLESS YOU LIKE REINSTALLING EVERYTHING EVERY 6 MONTHS ,when a new version comes out .

I would use CentOS or Debian

Thanks

Wow. Thanks for the thoughts. To one of the questions, yes, I have had Apache, php, and mySQL up for years on Windows, and have been wanting to try this side of the universe, as MS seems to be continually dumbing down their offerings. I have seen the CentOS site, and they seem to have stopped their upgrading, and a friend here at the University really likes SuSe. Again, thanks for the guidance on rpm files, and I am sure this will not be my last foray into this thread.

suse is nice and Cent has NOT stopped dev.
Cent is a "free" version of red hat

most distros ( except fedora) have a " long life" or " extended life" version .These are ment for the office and as servers .
Fedora is a FAST development and R & D distro.
usable and stable yes BUT not a good choice for a server

CentOS upgrades usually follow a about shortly behind Red Hat Enterprise Linux. So I would expect to see CentOS 5.5 in the next few weeks. Their website doesn't look very active at the moment, but I don't think it ever has - it doesn't seem to be a high priority for them.

Aren't CentOS and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) the 'long life' versions of Fedora (Core).

NO
as a long time user of fedora they are not .

while it is true that things in fedora will make it into RHEL .Fedora is a R & D type of distro
A "let's see " and a "what if" distro.
A lets push the envelope as FAST and as FAR as we can before we REALLY mess things up.

At one time the two were officially connected .But not anymore . Now some of the fedora dev's do work ( day job) for red hat . They are different projects.

Fedora is the bleeding edge R&D distro from RH with a new version every 13 mths or so and only last 2 versions supported.
RHEL is the commercial (supported/updated for 7 yrs) version. The 2 look similar and the debugged stuff from Fedora ends up in RHEL much later (yrs). You can't mix them.
Centos is a free version of RHEL.
