Turning a Linutop into a web server is easy.

You need to switch to persistent mode first.

The installation of the server elements can be done using apt-get or synaptic.


Web server

To install the Apache web serveur install the apache2 package:

sudo apt-get install apache2

To make sure it is installed start firefox and go to the url http://localhost. The web pages have to be copied in /var/www.


To install PHP install the libapache2-mod-php5 package:

sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-php5

To make sure it works edit /var/www/index.html:

sudo mousepad /var/www/index.html

And type:

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

Go to http://localhost/index.php in firefox, you should see the PHP informations page.

If it doesn't work restart the web server:

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Databse server

To install a database server (MySQL) install:

sudo apt-get install mysql-server php5-mysql

A password will be prompted for the root user. It is the MySQL administrator login/password, needed to perform actions on databases.

To install a frontend for the sql server use:

sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin

A question about phpmyadmin configuration will be asked, select 'apache2' and validate.

Go to http://localhost/phpmyadmin in firefox to use it. The login is root and the password the one you typed when prompted.

Images trouble

If the images are not displayed use the following commands in a terminal:

sudo -s
cat > /etc/apache2/conf.d/sendfile-mmap.conf << EOF
EnableSendfile off
EnableMMAP off

And restart the web server:

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
