Newbie question re: file locations


I just made the switch from Windows to Mandriva, but a lot of this is still very confusing for me. I believe I have apache/mysql/php installed right now (well, I can go to rpmdrake and it comes up as something I can remove). I'm interested in dowloading/locally installing Mambo 4.5.2.3 to build a website locally before uploading it.

How do I go about running Apache/mySQL/PHP? I can't seem to find them in the k menu anywhere, or have any idea of where the files are, even though I'm certain I have those installed. Can anyone take some pity on me and give me a hand? Thanks.

You will get Apache running executing this command on an Xterm/Konsole:
Code:
/etc/init.d/apache start
NOTE: The HTTP server can also be called httpd.

Usually all the files of the webserver are in /var/www/... and your webpages, PHP installs and similar stuff should be in /var/www/htdocs or similar. This changes a lot from distro to distro.

To install mambo:
http://easyurpmi.zarb.org and follow the instructions to get all the software repositories
use urpmi or rpmdrake to install the package called 'mambo'

You can see where a package has installed by running the command
Code:
rpm -ql packagename
. You can also do this through the rpmdrake GUI by going menu->System->Configuration->Packaging->Remove Software and selecting the package you want and selecting 'Maximum Information'.
