I don't know what is reasonable in this case...some folks get good results
on the hardware you described with Slackware. A Linux + Apache + MySQL + PHP
doesn't seem un-reasonable to try... but I've never done it.
On second thought, I sorta walked in
on the middle of this, didn't I? Let me back up a bit.
When you chose automatic for the lilo install, lilo wrote what it thought would
be a good configure file in /etc/lilo.conf and wrote a boot sector to the MBR of the hard drive where the root partition is...but before we go further, what kind of install did you do?
Did you see all the kernel messages flash by when it was booting?
Much of what's going on can be found in /var/log/dmesg and /var/log/debug and /var/log/messages....
After booting were you presented with a root login?
at the command line if you type
does the midnight commander run?
How did you try to start the servers?
I'm going to stop here , that's already too many questions....
If you did a full install, Apache MySQL PHP are already installed.
If as root you
#chmod a+x /etc/rc.d/rc.httpd
apache start script should run....if not somethin' wrong.
The MySQL start up script is named rc.mysqld not mysql.server, and
can be found at:
From man 1 mysql.server :
mysql.server reads options from the [mysql.server] and [mysqld] sections of option files.
You may need a bit of
PHP is also part of a full install, and once you have configured Apache and MySQL you should have a functioning (minimal)lamp ...
It not exactly Slackware but here's an interesting link
Some of the pgm versions are a bit dated but except for
PDF-Lib 4.0.3 you won't have to download and build anything..
