linux


Hello,
i'm looking for a linux distribution for a fresh and easy installation of a web server with apache + php + mysql.

I tried installing fedora many times without success and i'm not an expert in linux. So do you know a stable distribution of linux that will help me?

Thanks

everyone seems to think that debian is difficult to install.....try downloading the netinstall and just follow all the defaults. It will get you up and running in no time.

If we don't know what the problem was with Fedora, then it's hard to assess how best to help you.

Any of the mainstream distros should do what you want. Look at the recent Member's Choice awards here at LQ, or the "hit list" at distrowatch.

Sick of bot posting problems from a different forum verbatim on LQ
in irrelevant boards. Banning the thing and closing the threads.
