Can somebody please help me with this.

Thx biggrin.gif

so you are telling me that you have Red Hat 9 installed, first as usualy , I would highly reccomend that you switch to some more up to date distro, and to stay in the rh flawour, choose either CentOS 4.x or the latest Fedora Core.

I can help you here a bit... first you'll need to download the following package.

Here it is step-by-step :

start up this computer, login as root, open up a terminal and type the following.

cd /home
rpm -Uvh apt*.rpm
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get install php php-mysql mysql mysql-server httpd

once downloaded installed , you can config your server using the gui.

ps.: do switch to a newer distro, rh9 is seriously outdated, and no more updates for it.
Ok, thx.

What is best?

Fedora Core, or CentOS ?


"I'm Downloading Fedora Core" "Gonna try it for now" "but what is better?"

Thx again biggrin.gif

Fedora Core = always latest bleeding edge software
which means not necesarily unstable, but could have bugs , but that is not again 100%
life cycle is short

CentOS = older software version
which means more stable because it is more tested , due to the fact it's been out there longer.
life cycle is longer

and support for CentOS for example is about 8 yrs I think, that means you install it now, and you can stick with it for the next 8yrs and depend on it that you'll have updates regulary.

Let's not forget, however, about that nasty hacking incident involving CentOS...
