Apache PHP - package apache_1.3.27a_dingetje

Postby lotus123r5 » Wed Oct 28, 2015 1:22 pm

i want to create a form, working on Freesco and need php to make it work...
I think i have to install apache_1.3.27a_dingetje package from http://www.freescosoft.nl/fs.03x.released.php ..., but before installing i have some questions:

1. By default freesco allready have a "www" directory, which one works great. The defeault installed "www" is also apache? or is this another webserver application or another (older) apache version...?
2. if i install "apache_1.3.27a_dingetje" then the "www" directory still be intact with all data? So, after installing the data still there and work as before?
3. After installingthe package it has a kind a (l)amp installed, but this one we call Famp... "Freesco, apache, mysql and php"...... or is MySQL not a part of this package...

again, hope to get some info, before continuing...
ps, installing will be via telnet, by root, with the following command: "installpkg apache_1.3.27a_dingetje" or do i have to use: "installpkg http://www.freescosoft.nl/0.3.x/apache_1.3.27a_dingetje"
or is there another package i can use to get my form working...?......

Thx! .... again!

The default web server is thttpd and not Apache.

Yes the default thttpd and Apache are both built to use the "www" directory and the same data. Apache just gives you more options as to the type of data, such as PHP. Although there is a PHP enabled thttpd package, but I would recommend using Apache because in speed tests it was a lot faster for PHP enabled web pages than the thttpd version. Apache is also a LOT more configurable. However thttpd is a faster for standard and CGI web pages and uses a lot less CPU resources.
3. After installingthe package it has a kind a (l)amp installed, but this one we call Famp... "Freesco, apache, mysql and php"...... or is MySQL not a part of this package...

Before you install the Apache package you MUST install a kernel with VIPC enabled. The Apache package won't install unless the VIPC kernel is running on the system first. Also be aware that there is a SSL package that you may also want to run for https web pages.

Be aware that changing a kernel VIA telnet or any remote method is somewhat risky because if anything goes wrong you will need to see the console and reboots will stop unless you use the command "fork reboot". But this is something that I have done many many times and I have about a 95% success rate :roll:

On a side note I am curious as to why you are still running the 03x series and have not upgraded to the 04x series which has SSH built in and a LOT of other capabilities?
If you are afraid that you might make a mistake. The chances are high that you will never learn anything.

MySQL is not part of the package, this is a separate install. I highly recommend also to install the phpMyAdmin package, because it makes MySQL database management a *lot* easier.
