Alexander Netkachev's Blog:
Easy Apache/PHP install
December 01, 2006 @ 07:52:00

On Alexander Netkachev's blog today, there's a walk-through of a light and easy method for getting PHP and Apache up and running. It makes use of the Installer Technical Preview utility to make live simpler.

I created the installer, which primary goal is to provide the developer with command-line tools for basic Apache/PHP/MySQL management tasks.

This a preview version of AMP installer and configurator. Although, it is very far from being a real time-proven and tested installation method, with your help and effort we can make it better.

There's a link for the download and a brief How-To on using the package to get things up and running quickly. There's also two things on the To-Do list for upcoming versions - installers for various other databases and support for automatic installation of modern PHP applications (like WordPress, phpbb, etc).

IT Manager's Journal:
Court library AMPs up
December 28, 2005 @ 07:26:56

Via this new post from LinuxLibrarian.org today, there's a pointer to this new article on the IT Manager's Journal site about the Supreme Court Library of North Carolina's move to an Apache/MySQL/PHP combination.

Until last year, [Ronald] Diener's organization was paying thousand of dollars a year to a library software vendor, but the vendor's services had become inadequate for the task. The court's IT team determined that they could develop a better, cost-effective in-house solution that would at the same time be open to participation from outside.

The open source option available through Apache, MySQL, and PHP (AMP) would serve as a resource to collaborate with other organizations and libraries, even internationally, in creating a continually upgradeable software portfolio. This solution would both cut costs and enhance the value of what could be offered to their own clients and a larger audience of legal professionals.

They do mention the comment made about finding documentation on implementing an AMP setup, but other than that, they seem happy overall with the system - plus it's already saving them money.
