How to Install EasyPHP

Postby oldlearner on Fri Sep 25, 2009 4:36 am

I am currently learning PHP on my daughter's pc which runs a non Linux Operating System. So could someone please help me install EasyPHP5.3.0 on to my pc which runs Linux MINT 7. Big thanks

If it's an .exe you'll either have to try to install it under Wine or do the virtual thinger. For learning PHP, my firm recommendation is to use a good text editor (gedit) and go to it (after you've properly installed LAMP).

Never had a problem installing apache, mysql and phpmyadmin.
do apt-get of three above. On mySQL installation it will ask you for a root password for the database access.
When apache and mysql are installed, by default, your 'localhost' will be /var/www

With phpmyadmin, I had a little manual work. It doesn't work by default (not sure why), so I had to manually copy phpmyadmin folder into /var/www and it worked immediately.
Best regards,

Behind door #3 (LAMP install):

Code: Select all
$ sudo tasksel

It all seems a little complicated for me at the moment so i think i'll give it a miss for now and keep on using the daughter's computer with EasyPHP already installed. Thanks for the replies though.

Just tried that out, I deselected two items on the list that came up and selected the LAMP option, proceeded to install it. After a while my internet got disconnected it said, so I opened up the Control Centre and icons started disappearing. I decided to stop the installation as it was only removing files, and I tried restarting. When I did that it went into command line, followed by problems trying to boot Vista again. I think I shall try to re-install Mint but give that command a miss the next time!

Whatever you "de-selected" has been removed from the Linux operating system.

Wonderful! I just burned another copy of LinuxMint so I'll simply re-install it. I'll get a chance to experiment a bit more with it and hopefully not create a second mess. :)

If you remember what you "deselected", I guess you could kick off tasksel again and "re-select" the options. At this point you've got little to loose. I'll have to remember to put that note in my tutorial on my website covering Easy LAMP installation.

Hope it all works out for you without too much stress.

I'm relatively green at Linux, I've simply tried (And not had a whole lot of success) at managing a server through the linux command line for over a year. I finally decided that if I was to learn it properly I needed to use it as an OS for my own computer(s). So I removed LinuxMint and went for a full installation (instead of the second option from the ISO/CD), just re-configuring everything at the moment!
