SUSE 10.1 YaST not finding Apache2
 
Hello, I'm new to LQ and SUSE/Linux as a whole, please forgive me if I make a mistake.

I am using SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 Evaluation software. I was on susewiki.org earlier looking to download Apache2 and mysql. I followed the procedure YaST->Software Management->apache but the apache2 files are not there.

Please help, I really need it.

Thanks

Louis

I think server packages like apache are not included in SLED but are available in SLES (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server).

So, I should install SUSE Enterprise Server 10, and go again?
Or is there another way?

Thanks

Louis

You could install SLES from scratch or try to add the SLES discs to your YAST software installation sources (I've never tried this in SLED/SLES so don't know if it will work).

I have SUSE 10.1 at home but its not the Enterprise Desktop. I bought it in a box from Best Buy, and it came with 6 CDs and a DVD.

Since your version is an evaluation version, you will probably not have the more interesting packages. I recommend downloading the SUSE Linux 10.1 DVD from
SUSE Linux 10.1
If you poke around, you might also find the CD versions if you do not have a DVD burner. If you burn a DVD, it is a lot easier to install local packages, as you only have to put one disc in the drive.

Hi Red, Hi Dave,

Thank you so much for the advice. In the end I installed the Server 10, sure enough apache2, php5, and mysql files were there.

But now I have a new problem (should I make a new thread?). Now I'm testing with localhost, but every time I type into the URL I receive a Error 403, "Access Forbidden!"

I'm also looking around the internet as I am typing this, so far nothing yet.

Thanks

Louis

Edit: I think it's the apach2 that's not working properly, but I have no idea how to fix this.

You need to configure Apache2, including server root-folder permissions. Try this, it's for 10.2/10.3 but same sort of thing:
HowTo: Configure a Linux Apache Web Server on Suse/openSUSE 10.x (including SSI and CGI)
