view story

http://www.unix.com – Hello everyone, I would like to setup a lamp server from a minimal distro and to compile PHP, MySQL and Apache myself. I have chosen CentOS minimal for the OS and I am trying to build the stack by hand... But well, it appears I need some help! First: I am looking for good and recent tutorials on how to compile the latest version of PHP/MySQL5.1/Apache. I am interested in best practices for the compilation of latest source code of these programs. I would also like to understand all the configuration options of the LAMP in order to customize a maximum the server to the needs of the website it (HowTos)
