Lamp-Webserver help pleace

I installed openSUSE 13.2
In the installation I clicked for Gnome and Lamp-Webserver.
But how do I set Lamp / Web server after installation? How do I use this? Is there any howto or other assistance for openSUSE 13.2?

Verify both your lamp server and YAST appet to manage Apache are installed

zypper se -t pattern lamp
zypper se yast2-http

If they are both installed (there should be an “i” signifying installed to the far left of each result)

You can sinply open the following to configure
YAST > http-server


Thanks for the answer, and in the garden “It works!” after that i typed my domain in the browser.
So long everything good. But Oxwall that I think to use a server has the following requirements:

[li]Linux/Unix/Windows[/li][li]Apache 2 or higher (with mod_rewrite module)[/li][li]PHP 5.2.6 or higher with:[/li][LIST]
[li]register_globals off[/li][li]safe_mode off[/li][li]suPHP off[/li][li]suApache off[/li][li]suhosin off[/li][/ul]

[li]PHP modules:[/li][ul]

[li]MySQL 5.0 or higher[/li][li]GD Library 2 with FreeType support[/li][li]Mail server (SendMail, Exim or other)[/li][li]Cron[/li][/LIST]

And how do I configure MySQL and php? security and create new databases in openSUSE lamp server?

Glad to hear you got this far.

From this point on,
It’s probably best to read your Oxwall documentation and follow whatever is recommended.

Skimming the Oxwall documentation quickly, it looks like there are a number of methods to complete your install with a basic configuration, the main page is here

It looks like the AMPPS option should be considered first, but the “simple scripts” option should work on both local and hosted installs.


Thanks for the information. but Ampps is not compatible with openSUSE only with Windows, Ubuntu and CentOS.

I know how to install Oxwall manually. but for this I need to set up ftp server and mail server. configure MySQL and php? security and create new databases

Therefore I asked earlier if there were howto / wiki especially for openSUSE 13.2, which explained these questions I here have spresiert?

  1. How to set up MySQL and php with passwords.
  2. How to get into and create new database?
  3. How to set up ftp server?
  4. How to set up mail server?
  5. How to Set Up Cron?

When I have come through the five steps, then I can start installing the Oxwall.

But where I find useful information / help that explains how to do this in openSUSE 13.2?

Most of today’s web platforms are installed with generic scripts that usually work on diverse OS once you’ve completed installing the basic building blocks like in this case LAMP. They don’t always work 100% but this is where you should start.

When I explore where the “script” link I gave you in my previous post goes, you’ll eventually arrive at this page

This page looks to me like what I typically see that configures the website and wires up the database…

As for MySQL authentication, the last time I checked MySQL is set up by default with local only connectivity that does not require username/password. Security is defined to allow easy, no username/password connectivity but only to an application located on the same machine. If you want connectivity that supports remote connectivity (from another machine) then you need to modify MySQL’s authentication. Changing security is a basic functionality you can find in any MySQL Administrator’s guide.

If you use these tools provided by or recommended by Oxwall, Oxwall and its components should be set up properly and you shouldn’t need to set up and configure these components manually.

But, if you do want to configure and manage manually (again, I don’t recommend this if the Oxwall tools work)

  • I personally prefer using the MySQL admin in a console. Another popular tool is SQL Workbench, but I’ve found it useful only for displaying MySQL components and data, and limited in managing and modification.
  • I don’t know if oxwall’s ftp can be managed by the YAST FTP applet. Since oxwall installs its own ftp, any non-oxwall tool is YMMV. You need to read the oxwall documentation.
  • Everything said about ftp applies equally to the mailserver. Anything provided by oxwall should start with oxwall documentation.
  • As a modern Linux distro that uses systemd, you can still set up Cron jobs, but it might be better to configure the same using the systemd timer service.


Thanks for all help here, but:

It is a great advantage to set an own password on php / database. And how to do this in openSUSE, is yet unanswered!

Should we install Oxwall, which I know better than my own shoes, you have to set up a new user in MySQL database. And then create a database. The database must be clear, before installing Oxwall.

How to create a new database in openSUSE, is also unanswered!

This i dont cal god lamp server solution!

php was not installed after i install lamp in yast.

and after have did that, i have error in phpMyAdmin

Raske steg for å sette opp avansert funksjonalitet:

Maybe the Ubuntu or CentOS its bether on this anyeay! Becouse this its not god at all.

I"m not sure how best to recommend your path forward…
I can see that you may not be strong enough in your English language skills yet I cannot find any useful MySQL guide in any Scandinavian language, especially Norwegian.

Your questions at this point are mostly fairly basic questions about how to modify MySQL such as changing the security model and creating tables.
As I described, typically this is not something modern Web solutions ask new Users to do manually because it’s easy to make mistakes and can be a lot of work. The Oxwall “Scripts” page I pointed you to presumably will do all these things for you automatically. I do not know for sure that the scripts will work on openSUSE but there is no reason to believe they won’t.

As you can imagine, I am not conversant in Norwegian, but I think I can assume “OK” means the same in most languages, and that means your PHPMyAdmin readout may not include whatever error message you seem to believe exists. If you can quote the actual error, then it can be Googled and if necessary someone may be able to interpret for you.
