Slackware guide for AMP Apache MySQL & PHP


03-07-05 EDIT: Fixed typo 'mysql_install_db.

This is my guide on how to get the latest versions Apache, Mysql, and PHP up and ready in 10 minuts.

Note: This is also found on my site http://xushi.co.uk/guides/amp.php , which i'll frequently update.
Note: For the packages, i use http://www.linuxpackages.net
Note: for a text editor, here i use pico. If you want a quick tutorial on it,

=====================
Using Pico, or Nano
=====================
to edit a file
Code:
pico myfile
Code:
pico /etc/apache2/myfile
to save
Code:
ctrl + o
enter
to exit
Code:
ctrl + x
enter
to save and exit (together)
Code:
ctrl + o + x
enter

=====================
MySQL 4.1.11
=====================

download from linuxpackages.net
=============
install
============
Code:
installpkg mysql-4.1.11-i486-2mjg.tgz
create a group called mysql
============
Code:
groupadd mysql
create user mysql (if you don't have him.. to see if you do, type su - mysql. If it says "Unknown id: mysql" then you don't have that user.
============
Code:
useradd -g mysql mysql
give user mysql access
============
Code:
chown -R mysql.mysql /var/lib/mysql
install a database from user mysql
============
Code:
su - mysql
mysql_install_db
exit
create a my.cnf file
============
Code:
cp /etc/my-medium.cnf /etc/my.cnf
keep the socket in /var/run/mysql/, its more secure than /tmp.
don't modify anything else

start mysql
============
Code:
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.mysqld
su - mysql
/etc/rc.d/rc.mysqld start
exit
set a password for mysql root user
============
Code:
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'

From this point onwards, i prefer to use mysqlcc to set mysql up..
download it from
http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/other/mysqlcc.html

unpack it
============
Code:
tar xvfz mysqlcc-0.9.4-linux-glibc23tar.gz
run it
============
Code:
cd mysqlcc-0.9.4-linux-glib23/
./mysqlcc
file > new
name: mylocalmysql
hostname: localhost
user: root
password: **********
socket file: /var/run/mysql/mysql.sock

click on test, it should be successful



=================================
APACHE 2.0.53
=================================

download apache
=============
install apache
==============
Code:
installpkg apache2-2.0.53-i486-2spi.tgz
edit apache config file
===============
Code:
pico /etc/apache2/httpd.conf
You don't really have to edit anything right now. Apache should work with the current configs.


==================================
PHP 5.0.4
==================================

download php-apache2
==============
install php-apache2
==============
Code:
installpkg php-apache2-5.0.4-i486-1spi.tgz
download & install t1lib 5.0.2 (needed)
=================
Code:
wget ftp://ftp.scarlet.be/pub/linuxpackag...-i486-2spi.tgz

installpkg t1lib-5.0.2-i486-2spi.tgz

configure php
==============

edit httpd.conf and make sure this line is at the bottom of the file
=============
Code:
pico /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

Include /etc/apache2/mod_php.conf
edit mod_php.conf
==================
make sure the line looks similar to this

Code:
LoadModule php5_module lib/apache2/libphp5.so

start apache & php
==============
Code:
apachectl start
or
Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.httpd start
When started, go to your web browser, and go to
Code:
http://localhost
you should see a website. Good.

let's test php
===============
Code:
cd /var/www/htdocs
create a file called test.php and add the following to it

Code:
<? phpinfo(); ?>
You should now be able to see all the php configurations.
If you search for mysql, you won't find it.
Let us link mysql to apache and php now.

stop apache
===========
Code:
apachectl stop
or
Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.httpd stop
go back to /etc/apache2, and edit php.ini
==================
Code:
cd /etc/apache2/
pico php.ini
search for mysql
============
Code:
ctrl + w  mysql
uncomment the line ;extension=mysql.so by removing the ';'
============
Code:
extension=mysql.so
restart apache
============
Code:
apachectl start
refresh the http://localhost/test.php
and search for mysql
now you will find it halfway through the webpage.

Congratulations... =)


==================================
Upgrading AMP
==================================

Upgrading is easy. This example can be used over and over again, with Apache2, php_apache2, and mysql.

Apache 2.0.54 came out recently, so i will use this as my example. To upgrade a package, simply download it from LP.net, and upgrade using upgradepkg

stop the service
=================
Before upgrading AMP, it's recommend to actually stop the service you're using first. Then start it again when done.

To stop apache, just simply type
Code:
apachectl stop
. Similarely, if you're upgrading mysql, you would stop it like so,
Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.mysqld stop
.

download the latest apache2 (in our eg, 2.0.54)
=================
upgrade Apache2
===========
Code:
upgradepkg apache2-2.0.54-i486-1spi.tgz
This will upgrade your older 2.0.53 with the new 2.0.54 version. All the configurations should still be there, unaffected. But nevertheless, i always keep several backups of my httpd.conf files incase the worst ever happens.

restart the service
============
Finally, what's left is to start apache again. This is done through,
Code:
apachectl start
. And everything should be working again. This upgrading can be used over and over again, and is not problematic. Just frequently check LP for the latest packages for Apache2, php-apache2, and mysql.

You're welcome newinlinux, I'd like to write about CMS, but i'm in the last month of my final year now, with my projects, dissertation, exams, and Cisco.. so i'm a bit buzy

Give me 2 months, i'll be done, and will have enough free time to make many more tutorials.. I'll post them here as well as my site.

Is this the default location or do you have to do some other steps to accomplish this?

keep the socket in /var/run/mysql/, its more secure than /tmp.

AFAIK, yes, it's the default location. Others may prefer to have their socket in /tmp, but i've hears from fellow members that it may be insecure.

I get:

Code:
Syntax error on line 8 of /etc/apache2/mod_php.conf:
Invalid command 'AddType', perhaps mis-spelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration
Any ideas on this?

edit. I fixed it. I was too dumb to check for new config files. It's ok now.

Hi, I am getting the exact same error you were. Can you tell me how you fixed it?

UPDATE: I fixed it, nevermind.

Sure. In my /etc/apache2 folder I noticed there was a file called httpd.conf.new. So I got rid of the original httpd.conf and renamed httpd.conf.new to httpd.conf, adding this line to the end of it:

Include /etc/apache2/mod_php.conf

Everything worked perfect after that. Hope this helps.

This might be a dumb question but did you use Slackware 10.2? And more importantly when you were installing Slackware did you request just the basic package free of php, mysql, apache? and then installed them later like you did in this guide... or what did you do to prepare for your installation of apache, mysql, and php?
