But if you are lazy...
Authored by: Anonymous on Oct 07, '01 07:29:14PM

I think the work many put into acquiring and using open source software is wonderful and I have enjoyed doing that many times. However, sometimes, it's not just Apache I want to add, but TomCat, AND PHP and.. well, you get the idea- it can get complicated when they need to be configured together. Recently, on a whim, I tried the pre-packaged software from OpenOSX.com. I bought the Open Web install which includes Apache, TomCat 4.0, SSL, PHP and MySQL. Yes, I paid $30. But I saved myself a lot of time right off the bat, and should I have to re-install, I can just refer to their installer. And yes! there is an uninstaller in case you get cold feet.
Also for TomCat, there is a nice GUI startup program called TomCatX. It works well and, especially if you run under a root controlled port, allows for easy root startup through another handy program, Pseudo.
