    I managed to compile and successfully install in the NAS200:

    • lighttpd/1.4.23 (ssl)
    • PHP 5.2.10 (fast-cgi and cli) + extensions (mysql + mssql + gd + etc)
    • MySQL 5.0.85

    I would like to know how many people is interested in this software for the NAS200 since I didn´t make "easy-to-install" tarballs yet and I´m considering not to release them.
    If you ask yourself: why?
    First because I don´t have a lot of spare time right now, and second because of this. :cool:

    i'm interesting about dns server with a http server.

    For DNS server you can use dnsd, it´s part of the new busybox that I supplied. Check this thread.
    For http: what exactly do you need? Since NAS200 already has a http server that can be used to serve static content for example.

    For exemple: i want to install an web gallery, like gallery2, and i need php, mysql and of course, http server. But, i think that the nas200 doesn't have the "power" to maintain a lot of services up. :mad:

    I have installed SPGM gallery, that´s why I compiled lighttpd + php in the first place.
    It´s running fine.
    NAS200 can run some services as long as they don´t take a lot of memory and more important a lot of CPU.
    Right now I´m running a few (service up) but not using all of them at the same time, and the NAS200 is working fine, not amazingly fast, but good enough for me at least.

    Yes, in my case I run:

    • dnsmasq (DNS, DHCP + TFTP)
    • NFS server
    • NTP
    • remote syslog server
    • lighttpd with php5

    I can say it runs very stable. However, speed is as usual a big let down.

    So you can actually run quite a lot of services as long as the actual working set is small. In my case for example, the load caused by dnsmasq, NTP and the remoge syslog server is quite minimal, so you don't even notice they are running.

    Lighttpd and NFS are quite bursty, and the first request tend to be slow (process paging in) and next few subsequent request go at the usual NAS200 speed.

    I even further reduce the effects of the lack of performance by caching by files. (i.e. I synchronise home directores on login/logout and work locally most of the time).

    I'm interested regardless on how complicated the install may be

    A Simple easy to install tarball would suffice. I am not planning to run a linux distro on my nas just simple add-ons with the jacx firmware

    I'm actually interested. I run a tower with Ubuntu and LAMP just for testing web projects and I was thinking of using my NAS200 instead so I don't have to have too many hardware turned on at the same time.

    Since I'll be the only one accessing it, this might work for me so if you can send me details about how to go about it?

    Guys, I´m sorry but I´m no going to release a tarball for this feature. :frown:
    Basically, this software package (lighttpd+php+mysql+sqlite) has a lot of libraries dependencies and so on. Right now I don´t have enough spare time to work on it.
    It will not be as easy as "download - untar - enjoy" and also is a big package (more than 150MB I´m almost sure, maybe more).
    So bottom line: no release of this package is planned as a standalone BUT you can enjoy in the almost ready distro I´m working on.

    Sweet i can wait for the tarball release :)

    Sorry, but as I stated in a previous post, there is not going to be a tarball release for this feature.
    It will only be available as a feature of the upcoming UFS200 (the USB root filesystem that I´m working on).
