Installation Question


I'm currently have a server running RedHat and I'm configuring it as a web server. I need to install Apache, PHP, and MySQL. I downloaded ApacheToolBox to install all 3 of them at once. I downloaded it to my /root directory. In the readme, it says that the first step is to "Run ./install.sh to install ApacheToolBox".

I entered exactly "./install.sh" into the run box, and it told me that it failed to locate the file or directory.

I have I feeling I'm doing something wrong here because I've downloaded a few other scripts similar to ApacheToolBox and they all say the same thing. "Run ./install.sh to install...".

So I guess my question is: Where must "install.sh" (and the rest of the files for that matter) be in order to get the command to work?

Any help appreciated, I'm a linux

Try to change directory into the exact local location where your install script resides. For example, cd /to/where/your-install-script-is-located, then ./install etc.

Hope it helps.

the file you downloaded is probably an archive like a tar or tar.gz file. you will need to extract the file to a directory and then go into that directory and run the install script

Smile Guys is Correct!

Unzip if it is a .tgz or .bz2, but after that, if you're in KDE, use a graphical filemanager to get to where the install script is located right click>actions>openterminal here

a terminal should come up. type the stuff it should work

If using Gnome or something, just post back iof you need help cd ing around in dircetories

Okay guys, it seems to run the install.sh file now. However, it gave me a few "file missing" errors. Could this be because I don't have all of the files in the proper directories? For example, there is a /bin directory included with this ApacheToolBox, and it contains a few files. Does this mean I need to put those files in the /bin directory on my server? Or will the script put them there?

Thanks for any further help.

Wink you could try it

Try to find some kind of install instructions on the website where you got it from or that came with the file. Besides you maybe having to copy a directory, just a question... is the a "configure" file. If not there may be library dependencies that you need to install that program. The website or readme is the place to find out what else you need.

More good luck...
