Recently I’ve been thinking about a Debian Lamp package. Simply put it would be a virtual package mostly used to install the relevent packages:
- Apache2 + PHP4 + PHP4-mysql.
But should it depend upon MySQL? If it does that forces the database to be upon the same host.
The other part of the package is the postinstallation setup, minimally it should:
- Enable php4.
- Enable php4-mysql
- Change the MySQL root password.
- Alter the default PHP configuration to make it “more secure”.
Thinking about it this work is either trivial and useful. I cannot decide which…
(There could be lamp-php, and lamp-perl which includes DBI and sets up CGI instead of PHP).
