Install Apache(apache2.2.2)

* Type ./httpd -l
9. Open httpd.conf(/usr/local/apache_new/conf/) and find a line starting with ServerAdmin.

Install Mysql 4.1

Add a login user and group for mysqld to run:
# groupadd mysql
# useradd -g mysql mysql
# tar zxvf mysqlversion.tar.gz
# cd mysqlversion
# ./configure–prefix=/usr/local/mysql
# make
# make install
# cp support-files/my-medium.cnf /etc/my.cnf
# cd /usr/local/mysql

If you haven’t installed  mysql before, you must create the mysql grant tables:
#bin/mysql_install_db –user=mysql
(If you run the command as root, you should use the –user option. The value of the option should be the name of the login account that you have created in the first step to use for runnning the server)

#cd /usr/local/mysql
#chown -R root .
#chown -R mysql var
#chgrp -R mysql .

Install PHP(PHP4.4.2)

Unpack a source archive
# tar -zxvf php-4.3.3.tar.gz

Configure PHP as Apache module with MySQL support
#./configure –with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs –with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql

Compile the sources
# make

Install the compiled Apache module
# make install

Copy php.ini-dist to /usr/local/lib/php.ini
# cp ./php.ini-dist /usr/local/lib/php.ini

Integrate PHP with Apache

Open httpd.conf(/usr/local/apache_new/conf) open in your text editor

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .phtml
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps

Save the file, go up a directory (cd ..), and stop and restart Apache by typing:

./bin/apachectl stop Followed by ./bin/apachectl start

Find the document root from httpd.conf(/usr/local/apache_new/conf) file
DocumentRoot “/usr/local/apache_new/htdocs”

Configuring Websites

Edit /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf and make sure it has the
correct document root settings :: /var/www/
(change the defautlt documetroot in config file (#DocumentRoot “/usr/local/apachenew/htdocs”) to /var/www/ and also change the the ‘directory’ directive(#<Directory “/usr/local/apachenew/htdocs”) to /var/www/(search for the DocumentRoot and change))

Un-comment the following options …
-> Include conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf
-> Include conf/extra/httpd-default.conf

Then edit the v-hosts file(conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf) and setup a couple of dummy sites just to make sure everything is working as it should(Comment out all the default VirtualHost entries inside this file)

NameVirtualHost ServerIP:80

<VirtualHost ServerIP:80>
DocumentRoot /var/www/test1/
ServerName test1.com
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost ServerIP:80>
DocumentRoot /var/www/test2/
ServerName test2.com
</VirtualHost>

Create the two directories in /var/www/ and place a index.html file in  each, with some domain specific text in, so we can differentiate between the two when testing.

Launch Apache
# /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl start

Check the two sites
