Be advised to set "allow_url_fopen" to "On" in /etc/php/php.ini in order to upgrade/update Wordpress properly from the admin panel. (does this info belong here?) --Rataxes 14:13, 23 July 2009 (EDT)


If the service httpd don't start, take a look at /var/log/httpd/error_log. If appears this line: -[alert] (EAI 2)Name or service not known: mod_unique_id: unable to find IPv4 address of "myhost" you must uncomment the line: LoadModule unique_id_module. Restart httpd and now it should work. --Nak 17:22, 22 April 2007 (GMT+1)

Split this article

I hope this is what the page is for.

In my opinion setting up LAMP should not contain detailed information about how to set up parts of LAMP. It would be cleaner to only explain how to bring these parts to work together. Especially because of the explanation's integrity. Further more because then users will be able to find a standalone HOWTO for setting up these parts. For example you don't have to read through this page order to get MySQL working. Because of the mentioned integrity I think it would be best to create independent HOWTOs on how to setup MySQL, php and maybe even apache and refer to them from this page.

I've started with MySQL because I know how to setup it and because some parts in this HOWTO are not needed any more and because of that are just confusing.

Using SSL

Could the SSL section be expanded to include how to use .htaccess and mod_rewrite to redirect traffic for certain sections or the whole site? I found apache2-forcing-all-inbound-traffic-to-ssl to be a useful resource in this respect. Corburn 13:58, 23 March 2012 (EDT)

PHP: do not use mime type application/x-httpd-php

I would recommend deleting this advice from the article:

"Add this line in /etc/httpd/conf/mime.types:

application/x-httpd-php		php php5"

Isn't the whole point of PHP to run it on the server side and turn it into text/html? Setting the MIME type as suggested here causes Firefox, for example, to offer to download the file or open it (in Notepad!!), instead of just presenting the HTML page.

Wrong argument order?

# usermod -aG http piter

Seems like usermod accepts group as first argument and user as second, unlike gpasswd. Please check. axper (talk) 12:06, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

userdir disable

I think that section need add:

#LoadModule userdir_module modules/

to fully disable userdir.

apache 2.4 upgrade

PHP breaks with apache2.4 install due to the PHP not being "threadsafe" by default, and MPM in apache being turned on by default, and is now core apache. PHP_ZTS[1] in AUR fixes this. this is simply php recompiled.

You can also get PHP to work by using the mod_mpm_prefork as described in the first note in the PHP configuration section. You are right that you can also create an thread-safe PHP, but this is not recommended by PHP devs.[2] I think way currently described is the "right" way, but I'm not sure about that. --Lonaowna (talk) 09:25, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
