Automate Installation of Web Server in openSUSE 10.2 (installs Apache, MySQL, and PHP) – bash script

24 06 2007

We have a special treat for anyone who manages or installs multiple machines running Linux, Apache, Mysql, and PHP. This would also be known as the LAMP stack. I got sick of having to install all that by hand every time I was putting another LAMP server together. What I have done is put together a small bash script that will automate the process of installing Apache, MySQL, and PHP. It also adds them to the init scripts, and actually starts up the MySQL and Apache services. All you have to do is set up your MySQL root password, and you are set to go. This script is available here for anyone who may find it useful. It should be easily modifiable to install perl or python for users of those tools.

Download the script here. Extract with command: “tar -jxvf install-lamp-stack.sh.tar.bz2″

Generally, when installing a new machine, I actually use this script I put together to automate the insertion of YAST Installation Sources as well. Run the Installation Sources script first, and then the LAMP stack script, and you’ll be 90% of the way to having yourself a web server.
