    Default LAMP Installation

    I would like to try Joomla Content Manager. It needs a LAMP server.

    In openSUSE 11.0, do I have to install and configure Apache, MySQL and PHP separately? Or is there a single package that does it all?

    I am a newcomer to Linux and could use some basic instructions about how to go about it.

    Is all of the software available on the boxed openSUSE DVD or do I need to get it elsewhere? I cannot find it listed as available in the YaST install software.

    Cordially,

    Just make sure php5, mysql, apache are installed (witch simply can be done by Yast).

    You can install phpMyAdmin, but that one did not work for me, so I downloaded it manually from the phpMyAdmin website.

    By default, Apache points to /srv/www/htdocs/

    Good luck, and if you've got problems, don't hesitate to ask them here (or google a bit) ^_^

    There's a LAMP server located at Yast --> Software Management. Set the filter to patterns and select Web & LAMP server.

    never do that!

    I do not see the "Web and LAMP server" listed.

    Apache is not installed on my computer. Do I need to install it first?

    Please, how often do I need to hear not to log in as root? It is not a
    bad thing in principle. You're just not supposed to do your daily work
    with it.
    And by the way, using su constantly is not what I call proper privilege
    separation. If you do so, a compromised user account means root is taken
    as well. So can we get back to the facts, please?

    Kind regards,

    No, I did not see that screen. When I originally installed openSUSE 11, I took the simplest default options so I could learn about the OS without too many side issues. Maybe I need to install other YaST modules. Let me do some more reading so I can ask a proper question.

    since so many do not seem to know better, and apparently refuse to
    read other posts, old text books, etc etc etc...AND bring with them
    from that "Popular OS" a profound misunderstanding of the how and way
    of *nix system administration: often.


    > It is not a bad thing in principle.


    in principle it is a very bad thing. ymmv

    > You're just not supposed to do your daily work with it.


    no.

    > And by the way, using su constantly is not what I call proper privilege
    > separation.


    i have no idea how you intend to do administrator tasks without using
    administrator privileges...and, the "separation" is perfect if you
    never ever sign into a GUI as root and always follow the correct
    procedure to use administrator powers..


    > If you do so, a compromised user account means root is taken
    > as well.


    ???? are you saying using "switch user" [su] to become root somehow
    compromises a normal users account? or what?


    > So can we get back to the facts, please?


    as a matter of fact, i don't actually understand presty80's FIRST post
    ever to this forum (in the middle of thread with an entirely DIFFERENT
    problem), but i do know that his "when my home was locked" problem CAN
    be *caused* by logging into a GUI as root and rummage around in the
    user's home directory....which absolutely can (and most probably
    might/will) cause an unintended change to the permissions of
    /home/[user]/.ICEauthority and/or Xauthority

    ymmv, but your opinion that it is okay to log in as root as long as
    you don't do your daily work that is wrong.

    Gee I knew someone would get it wrong and shoot from that angle.

    What I am saying is that using "su" from a user account (which which you
    IRC, read mail and surf) is just as bad as logging in as root and IRC, read
    mail and surf. And I think we all agree that this is something you should
    not do.

    And I continue to claim:

    >> It is not a bad thing in principle.

    No, that is NOT perfect separation. CTRL-ALT-F2 is, and so is a new X
    session for root if you need it. "su"/"sudo" do not provide that.

    No. I am saying a compromised user account + "su" means the root account is
    compromised.

    > ymmv, but your opinion that it is okay to log in as root as long as

    I beg to differ and I think I have been very clear on why I think so. If
    security is a concern, users and root are *never* to be mixed.
