Configure commands

Postby naraheel » 16. May 2012 14:55

Hi,

I wanted to know if you guys provide the configure commands for your XAMPP for Linux software.
I mean what is the configure command you guys use for Apache, MySQL, PHP, etc

Should I presume you mean the configure commands used to compile?

If they are available, you would likely find them in the developer package.

Just asking -- you do know XAMPP/LAMPP is NOT a LAMP stack, right???

Hi,

I will try to find it in there.
But would appreciate if you point to the folder as well.

>> Just asking -- you do know XAMPP/LAMPP is NOT a LAMP stack, right???

You mean to say its not a PRODUCTION ready LAMP stack right.
From what I know its a LAMP stack for local development but not for production. Correct me if I am wrong.

Hi,

I couldn find the configure commands for the packages in the share folder and that of MySQL.
The PHP binary is not even there. Is the devel package of any sense ?

Hi naraheel,

No, JonB wanted to say that XAMPP for Linux is not a stack, its glue is a bash script in /opt/lampp/lampp. You can take a look at it if you want to, it is documentated.

its not a stack, as none of the components are actually installed as far as Linux is concerned. This leads to many secondary problems, as the OS has no idea what you are doing. LAMP (as a stack) -- at least as far as I am concerned -- means that Linux knows the A, M, & P are there. The bottom line - particularly since you are talking about compiling is that you will not be able to use generalized installers -- like yum -- and expect them and LAMPP to know what the other is doing. See my post about GD.pm Stacks imply you can use standard methods. Try installing Webmin or an IDE or a Framework over LAMPP for instance - lots of things to keep you alert.

If you want to compile and replace components, use an installer built for your Linux distribution and build a correct stack.

Good Luck whatever you chose to do.

Hi,

Basically I want to make a SYSTEM independent stack which is light weight and for a particular job.
The sole purpose is NOT to disturb any other LAMPP stack on the system.
In this stack we will run Apache and MySQL on non-standard ports so that if there is another LAMPP stack using port 80, 443 or 3306 (for MySQL) it will not affect it.
Also since this will be system independent it can run on many systems without causing any issue of incompatibility. We just want to target Redhat style and debian style distros.
Do you think this will cause any issues ?

Also I couldnt get the config commands for MySQL and many OTHER dependencies compiled in LAMPP/share folder.
Any docs on those is greatly appreciated.

To me, It sounds like you should start your own 'fork'. LOL. BTW, that is as much work as creating XAMPP - good luck

Sorry I don't have any more info than what I have provided up to this point.

Hi,

No I am just doing this for some other project and its not for just LAMPP.
This is just the BASE. Its more into Virtualization.

The person to ask would be the project leader Oswald (Kai)
