Well why did'nt you say so ? This is trivial. Let me see if Puppy/MacPup could run a LAMP.

By the way, I found Lampmix, it's pretty small and could just be what you need as everything seems to be preinstalled and configured...

I'll follow this up to feed back on Puppy/MacPup

Edit : I'll look into DSL as well, though, at some point you'll have to (learn to) install software...

I think you're missing my point. I'm not trying to talk you into using CrunchBang, but rather, emphasize the ease of adding "AMP" (apache, mysql, php) to "L" (the linux distro of your choice: crunchbang, xubuntu, puppy, slitaz, tinycore, etc).

May be you should try either a minimal install of Debian (or Arch, also very minimal standard install) and only add the packages you need. If you use the netinstall CD you should use only a low amount of bandwith.
There may also be the possibility to try Tinycore or Slitaz for that, they are very small, but I don't know if they contain the packages you need.

i have puppy on my flash installed, but i dont seem to find lamp for it.
Puppy is perfect. It has all things i want except lamp. Only if i could find lamp for it...
Is it too hard to compile these(amp) one by one? I could configure them in slackware so i probably know what to do after installing them...
Also there was something in puppy wiki about haiwatha,(or like that, a web server) and there was a pet package for that too but it was for puppy 4 and i didnt know it will work on lucid or not(and it was 11mb)... Anyone know anything?

I am not a Puppy Linux expert, but don't they have a package manager and repository of available applications like most Linux distros?

If not, you could possibly try something something self-contained like this: http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-linux.html

oh, my problems arent going to finish!
it is a good idea, but the download link is for SourceForge.net which doest allow my country to download(:angry)...
and i cant use something like vpn or proxy because of my speed...
do you have a direct link somewhere else?
most torrent sites here are also censored, so i just can download using a direct link from somewhere... googling didnt give anything.

and puppy has package manager but there is no AMP in it...

Okay, where are you allowed to download from?

Forget the repo, in escence, a repo is secondary. All is open source, so it must be possible to download the source and compile it into the system...come on...

If not apache, MySQL, then at least some alternatives...

By the way, where about do you live? Are you allowed to download from annother site? Is it Sourceforge that blocks you or is your country blocking Sourceforge?

Just gauging the dept of the water here...

DSL looks promissing...let me look a Knoppix too...

Edit : can Xampp be gotten elsewhere?

Not being a Puppy user myself, I'm not sure whether to believe you or Barry Kauler (inventor of Puppy Linux):

Quote:
SFS files are typically "combo packs" of applications, containing all packages needed for what is required. For example, there is a "mySQL-PHP-Apache" SFS module available.

Have you considered visiting the Puppy forums for help?

i am in iran... sourceforge is blocking iran(i know, it is not fair! :anger)...
i just found that puppy can use lucid ubuntu's repos! that's very great because i can install lamp very easy using ubuntu's repo.
but i have the slow connection problem, but for the sake of this topic, my problem is solved now.
so my solution: USE UBUNTU LUCID REPOS TO DO EVERYTHING!
thx everybody for help

but i like DSL, if you found anything about that, please let me know. thx
