Why do you want to replace the current production environment with anthing else (especially a preconfigured webserver stack)?
In fact, we want to install an open source online learning suite called "Dokeos" which requires specific version of Apache, MySql and PHP according to its installation instruction. Please see its pre-requisites below.
Dokeos can be installed on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and UNIX servers indifferently. However, we recommend the use of Linux server for optimal flexibility, remote control and scalability.
Dokeos is mainly a LMS running Apache 2, 2.0, MySQL 5.1 and PHP 5.3 (the so called AMP trilogy).
All these software are open source and freely available.
To run Dokeos LMS on your server, you need to install WAMP, LAMP or MAMP:
•To install WAMP (AMP on Windows), we recommend the XAMPP .exe installer•To install LAMP (AMP on Linux), use the Package manager of your favourite distribution (Synaptic, RPMFinder etc.). For instance, on a Ubuntu server, use Shell or Synaptic following the Ubuntuguide on Apache and the following sections
•To install MAMP (AMP on Mac OS X), refer to the MAMP dedicated website
