    hi, (another noobie here, please have patience)

    i've been looking around for quite some time now, and really haven't found a site, article, post whatever that gives a step by step on how apache mysql and php can be installed from the tarballs(source)

    i've tried it out the first time i installed linux ( my very first one was a net install debian) , mysql went easily, i believe it executed itself, i installed the sql tools and it worked fine...

    i've been able to install apache independently and it worked fine...
    php worked also...

    however i haven't been able to make the whole AMP thing work, the apache php combo couldn't run with the mysql...
    and since i've been loaded with projects since then, i really haven't had time to sort things out, add to that i started using linux 5 months ago, with no friends that even touch the OS...

    i've, since then, slowly went through some basics, linux operation from the commandline, tried out a few diff. desktop envi's, checked out fedora...

    but I've never been able to come across a step by step howto on source installation of the AMP group...

    I've settled for the XAMPP package for some time now, but ... can I make a wish for that?

    help, anyone?
