Installing PHP on Ubuntu Any good tuts? adni18
Hey. Does anybody have a good link to a tutorial for installing PHP on Ubuntu Linux? I have installed Apache already, using sudo apt-get install apache2 [found on ubuntuguide.org]
And I tried using this to install PHP:
sudo apt-get install php4 sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart sudo gedit /var/www/testphp.php
but it didn't work. Besides, I would like to install PHP 5.x.x if possible. Any ideas or tutorials maybe?
I found this:
You can get nice up to date PHP5 packages which work well in Ubuntu Hoary by adding the following lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list
...] php5.0 hoary people.debian.org deb-src [ ...] php5.0 hoary people.debian.org
Just run apt-get update and then they will appear in apt.
Then you should be able to:
sudo apt-get install php5
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart sudo gedit /var/www/testphp.php
You'll need to verify that /var/www is where your server is looking for requests. In my Apache install it was /var/www/localhost/htdocs by default, which I changed in my httpd.conf (Apache configuration file).
You're probably gonna need mod_php too:
sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-php4(or 5)
I'm going to install Apache2 and php5 on Ubuntu as a production environment in the next couple of days and I'm just going to install the Ubuntu builds via Synaptic Package Manager. I've already installed the cli version of php5 this way and it works just fine.
