How To Create A LAMP Setup (Apache2, PHP, MySQL) On CentOS 5.x In An Amazon Linux AMI 32bits Or 64bits - Page 2

Install MySQL

To install MySQL we need to have an open console and put in the next instructions.

Get  root privileges:

sudo -i

Install MySQL:

yum install mysql mysql-server mysql-libs

Start the service and configure it to start automatically at boot time:

/sbin/service mysqld start
chkconfig --levels 235 mysqld on

Set a MySQL root password:

mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'


Install Apache And PHP

In the console type:

yum install httpd php php-mysql php-gd php-imap php-ldap php-odbc php-pear php-xml php-xmlrpc
/etc/init.d/httpd restart
chkconfig --levels 235 httpd on

Now open a browser and go to:



Install PhpMyAdmin

To install PhpMyAdmin we need a console again; please make sure that you have root privileges!

First we need to enable the RPMforge repository:

On Linux Amazon 32-bit:

rpm -Uvh rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm

On Linux Amazon 64-bit:

rpm -Uvh rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm

Then we install PhpMyAdmin:

yum install phpmyadmin

Now we modify the file /etc/httpd/conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf with nano:

nano /etc/httpd/conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf
#  Web application to manage MySQL  
#  #<Directory "/usr/share/phpmyadmin">  
#  Order Deny,Allow  
#  Deny from all  
#  Allow from  
Alias /phpmyadmin /usr/share/phpmyadmin  
Alias /phpMyAdmin /usr/share/phpmyadmin  
Alias /mysqladmin /usr/share/phpmyadmin

Then we change /usr/share/phpmyadmin/ and change the line $cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] from cookies to http:

[...]  /* Authentication type */  
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'http';  

Then we restart Apache:

/etc/init.d/httpd restart

... and go to PhpMyAdmin in the browser:


And that's all.
