10.4: Install Apache2, PHP5, and MySQL5
Authored by: trollll on Dec 20, '05 10:07:54AM

Might want to give people more info for an article named "Install Apache2, PHP5, and MySQL5" than:

1. Install Apache 2
2. Install MySQL5
3. Install PHP5
4. Make a folder (you might want to say why you want people to do this)
5. Add the config lines (most helpful piece of info you've posted)
6. Reboot and start the server

Seriously... The comment linking to phpmac had more useful info for people who haven't done this before. People who have done this before would understand how to do those steps, but they wouldn't need them in the first place.

Having config examples like:

~/Desktop/apache-2.0.54 $ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache2
~/Desktop/apache-2.0.54 $ make
~/Desktop/apache-2.0.54 $ sudo make install


~/Desktop/php-5.1.0 $ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/php --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql --with-mysqli=/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config --with-xml --enable-simplexml --with-config-file-path=/usr/local/php/lib
~/Desktop/php-5.1.0 $ make
~/Desktop/php-5.1.0 $ sudo make install

Would help people a little more.

Indeed, why would you want to make the symbolic link to /opt?

I am by no means a terminal guru but I have installed several things from source. I agree, this hint is of little use. Why bother with these ultra simplified steps? Who does this serve?

The phpmac links provided above at least give you some background...

Personally I'd like to thank the poster for taking the time, giving the proper links etc... Thanks! And if other posters can improve all the better: that's the spirit.
