    Can anyone advise whether or not it's possible to install Apache, php and MySQL onto an NSLU2 so that it can be run as a web-server?. I've logged onto nslu2-linux.org but really don't know where to start and do not want to render my NSLU2 useless by a failed flash :-(.

    Any comments would be appreciated. I'm a Linux newbie so please be kind.

    Thank you.
    Best Regards.

    Yes you can. This configuration is known as a LAMP server.

    I followed the tutorials @ nslu2-linux.org and got it running from a 256MB USBKey in a few days - a completely solid-state LAMP server! :thumb: (I'm also a Linux noob).

    I myself need to setup a small web server. But i really know nothing about hosting files or setting up HTTP. which is why i want to experiment with the slug

    How well do you think this little unit could handle a few people connecting every now and then and downloading some MP3s and such. any advice you could give me would be great.

    Slow.....do a search here, but I'm pretty sure there are some links to 3 web sites that are running off a nslu2

    why not just use the ftp built in?

    I would, but the game server (CS:S) wont allow FTP file transfers. It has to be HTTP.

    hey guys, i just have a quick question about apache 2.

    im attempting to install it to run a small HTTP server for our game files for CS:S. My question is, can i install it without registering a domain name?

    when i first attempt to install apache, it asks for a network domain, and a server name. How do i set this up only using an ip address, if possible

    Thx but i was able to figure it out. I simply took the DNS address that my ISP gives me and entered that into the Domain dns field. then i took my own IP address and entered that into the server name field.

    Which tutorials are you referring to? I can't find anything on there that specifically references all 3 aspects of a LAMP server.

    I'm fairly familiar with linux(it's been my main OS for about 6 months now) but I'm not so good with apache, sql or PHP. But I know I need those things to support the site I want to host.

    From http://www.nslu2-linux.org/
    Looks like they lost some content too, as I can't find the article either. IIRC it was the Optware Apache package page, but it isn't that helpful now :cry: . I may have simply followed the package pages and installed manually, but I don't recall doing that.
