First off I am a extreme Linux Newb , and I need alot of help, first off I have been given the task of setting up PHProject on a Mandrake 9.2 box , and I am sitting at home suffering my way through this , and need alot of help.
first I have a fresh install of Mandrake 9.2 with: Apache-AdvancedExtranetServer/2.0.47,
I have downloaded and run the RPM for MySQL-server-4.0.17-0.i386.rpm , I also have downloaded PHP admin , but have no idea where to put it , when trying to copy files to the /var/www/html ig get a access denied error , I have set myself as a user in the Root group

You're in luck. Been there, done that, have the battle scars to proove it.

I don't know what the Apache-AdvancedExtranet thing is. Never seen that before.

Start with regular old Apache. I'm using 1.3.28, haven't used 2.x yet. Get that downloaded, then head over to They have some good directions on how to compile Apache and PHP.

When I compiled PHP I used this in a configure script
./configure --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs --with-zlib --with-jpeg-dir --with-gd=/usr/include --with-png-dir=/usr/lib --with-mysql --with-ldap
If you do all that Apache and PHP should be playing well together. You can test it by making putting a file in your DocumentRoot, name it something.php. The contents of it should be
<?php phpinfo() ?>
When you pull that page up you'll get a big page of information about PHP.

There should be some good instructions in the PHProjekt for getting it installed. I've installed it myself and don't remember it being really hard to get going.
