Apache2Triad & LAMPP

Hallo, I was an apache2triad fan but understood that the developer stopped the software. In any case, it was never available for linux.

I then used LAMPP - it was ok but I had some problems with it. Is there anothe rproject that installs the necessary components "in 1 click" rather than installing and configuring them all individually? Is there another "apache2triad" project somewhere?

I did a search for apache2triad, but can't find (on their website) what makes it special. Can you tell us?

What are your requirements? apache and mysql, but which P? python, perl, php?

I can not remember that I had to do special configs for apache/mysql/php during my last (full) Slackware install (Slackware 12) except for starting the services. I had to make changes when I needed https and obviously when I needed virtual hosts.

As per his other thread fedix told us Apache2triad (Sourceforge) was DOA around 2006. LAMPP was the old name for XAMPP. While the XAMPP SW bundle is in no way as preposterously bloated as it was with Apache2triad it contains the basics: a webserver, database, interpreter, FTP daemon and a webbased database management tool (IIRC). The problem with these "1 click" installers is that they try to shield the user from gaining the knowledge and understanding that is prerequisite or mandatory for running these applications responsably. (And the fact this user knows how to run a MAMP stack on the mcrsft POS only makes things worse.) If I'm not mistaken the XAMPP site specifically mentions that XAMPP is for development purposes only and should not be exposed to the 'net. Of course that does not keep newbies from blithely doing just that anyway and consequently getting pwn3d in the process...
