Lamp on linuxmint


Hi All

I'm a newbie to Linux and lamp, trying to learn, I've installed - it seems correctly. How do I use what I have done - this may seem silly - however I have to ask questions if I'm to learn web design and have my fee
allow my fellow Pensioners, I am a volunteer at a Pensioners community center,

Any help appreciated.

regards Len Middleton

Do you mean how do you use Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP?

What distribution are you running?

The site below is at the Linux Mint site and explains installing a LAMP server. The second link below explains using it.
If you have it installed, what exactly is it that you have a question about.

Len,

I am not quite sure why you need a server.

Are there several computers at the Community Centre? How many?

What system(s) are they running?

Are the computers owned by the Centre or do some people take their own laptops etc?

We need a clearer picture of the current hardware and what exactly you are aiming to achieve.

We will need a server ! as require to have people to login via -no-ip which I have registered there are 4 pc 2 laptops and one pc I'm going to use for Linux so all pc's/laptops are on windows 7, all the computers are owned by me, but anyone can use them.

We are involved with our Housing Association and some of us are on committees, so those involved need to login to the community centre to collect information for the committee work. Also I am looking at trying make video linking for those who do not live in the immediate area, hope you can see where I trying to communicate to for any help I'm 82yrs old, but could manage our aims with some help, unless someone can find a different way of achieving our aims. THANK YOU. lenmiddy1

Len,

I have no experience of no-ip.com:

Perhaps other LQ members can assist you with your network requirements.

Len,

An alternative would be to install OpenMediaVault (based on Debian) on the server and then allow nominated users to remotely access it. OpenVPN plugins must be used for security (see below).

OpenVPN plugins for remote access:

I hope this information is of use to you.

Any other suggestions from LQ members for Len's network requirements?

Open your browser (firefox?) and go to "localhost."
If you have set everything up right, you should see a page there. If not, it will keep loading until it finally tells you it can't connect.
Now you need to learn HTML and CSS. If you do not know what these are, google them and find out.
You place your HTML files and your CSS files in a directory like /srv/http/ or something like that. I do not know the directory for linux mint. Then when you type "localhost" or your website name in your browser you will see the page you created.

Some of this may seem really simple, but that is basically all you MUST know. Obviously you should edit /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and files like that. Learning HTML/CSS is the hardest part.

Another idea could be owncloud. Can use it for a calendar of events, share pictures, videos, documents etc.

lenmiddy1, from your OP i have the impression that you don't even know 100% what a server is.
when you specify your requirements a few posts later on - this is a nice vision, but a rather complex task, and people make their livelihood by installing that sort of stuff on other people's computers.
i must say, with your (assumed) level of knowledge, you will hose your system within 5 minutes.

i really don't mean to be rude or condescending.
i think you should either look for end user oriented solutions (dropbox, a mailing list...) or take a step back and get aquainted with the basics first. don't expect to achieve your vision, rather try to get a server up and running first.
and be prepared to loose a few installations; you might want to backup important data before you start messing.
