-====== Setup Apache, PHP and MySQL ====== 
-In order to configure your Slackware Linux box as a MySQL-PHP -ready web server, please follow these instructions: 
-  * Install the Apache (httpd), php and MySQL packages from the Slackware discs or Slackpkg. 
-  * Fix php time zone (many apps will complain about this if you don't do it). Edit '''/etc/httpd/php.ini''' and find the following line and uncomment it: <code> 
-date.timezone = America/Chicago <--change to correct time zone 
-  * As the root user, open the '''/etc/httpd/httpd.conf''' Apache configuration file with your preferred text editor. Then, find the following line and uncomment it (delete the '#' character at the start of the line): <code> 
-Include /etc/httpd/mod_php.conf 
-</code> Now your Apache will include the PHP module when it starts. 
-  * Set a server name (if your machine's IP doesn't resolve to a name). Edit the '''/etc/httpd/httpd.conf''' and uncomment the following line: <code> 
-ServerName www.example.com:80 <--change www.example.com to an IP or your machine's name 
-  * Optionally (but recommended), you can configure Apache to use an '''index.php''' file as your directory index. You just have to search the following line...: 
-  * Optionally 2, if you use Perl for web scripts, you may want to add '''index.pl''' also. <code> 
-  <IfModule dir_module> DirectoryIndex index.html </IfModule> 
-</code> ... and change it to: <code> 
-  <IfModule dir_module> DirectoryIndex index.html index.php </IfModule> 
-</code> Please note the '''index.php''' part added. You can now __save__ and close your '''/etc/httpd/httpd.conf''' file and restart your Apache server in order to have your modifications applied. As root, execute: <code bash> 
-apachectl restart 
-  * If you want your Apache server to start automatically when you start your box, you can change the permissions of the '''/etc/rc.d/rc.httpd''' file. Execute the following command as root: <code bash> 
-  * chmod 755 /etc/rc.d/rc.httpd 
-</code> Now your Apache server will start automatically when your system boots. \\ \\ In order to configure your MySQL installation, please see the [[howtos:install_mysql_on_slackware|Install MySQL On Slackware]] doc. 
-===== Final Considerations ===== 
-  * Normally you would want to test your recent changes in order to know if they have worked. After restarting Apache, create a '''test.php''' file on your '''/var/www/htdocs/''' directory with the following: <code php> 
-<?php phpinfo(); ?> 
-</code> Now you can open your favorite web browser to the following URL: http://localhost/test.php . If you your PHP installation's settings are displayed, then you have configured your Apache correctly, otherwise, please re-check this documentation (getting sure you have followed every step correctly), or contact us at ##slackware on FreeNode.
