PHP & Apache & MySQL install how-to ?

how do i install php & mysql with apache on suse linux ???

apache was installed and configured when i installed linux.
all its files are in different folders. e.g http files in usr/local/httpd/htdocs/ and its configs are in etc/httpd/
so how do i install php and get it to work with apache and then install mysql to work with php. how do i know where everything will be installed to. e.g where will the data folder for the mysql db's be and stuff.

look for this module for your apache. on my sun it is called libphp4.so
(mod_php - PHP extension to apache)

then you have to edit your httpd.conf

LoadModule php4_module /<path>/libphp4.so
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source. phps

now your apache can speak php.....

to configure your mysql db you could use phpMyAdmin...
how to use php vs. sql belongs to your application... what do you want to do??

greetings Pre▀y

There should be RPMs on SuSE CD-ROMs or FTP for apache, php and mysql already. That is the best option if your suse is up to date.

If you want to go install sources ...

On my old 7.3 SuSE I simply downloaded php from sources and used the ./configure options to enable the options needed (there are a lot of options). It should detect your apache installation and generate a libphp4.so that you move into the apache modules directory. I also downloaded mysql 4.1-alpha binaries from MySQL and just extracting it should suffice (the rest of mysql configuration read the MySQL manual).

in my experiences, ive always had to recompile php to add support for mysql.
http://www.blazonry.com/scripting/install_apache.php
shows you how to do this. it isnt hard, but there is a package floating around called linux easy installer i believe its called. you just run it, and it does all the custom compiling for you. make sure to do a google search, and then translate the page, as its in french last time I looked at it. Should take about 30 mins. MySQL can be installed from rpm though, no need to custom compile it. Forgive me if there are rpm packages that include support for MySQL with PHP- last time I looked though, there wasnt. Easier to install (IMHO) from source anyways, as you dont have to fool around with Red Hat package dependencies, which call 1 package 3 different things.

Test Your Knowledge in Computers #138
Difficulty: Easy
The Unix philosophy is a computer operating system idea that means the operating system provides a set of basic tools that perform a limited, well-defined function, a unified filesystem as the main method of communication, and a shell scripting and command language to combine modular tools to perform more complex workflows.
