    Vector with LAMP? Not by default as far as I can tell. How did you install it?

    It does sit on my Slackbox *checks* /srv/www and /var/www
    What does this do for you??
    Code:
    for i in `slocate www`; do 
       if [ -d $i ] ; then 
          echo "$i"
       fi 
    done

    I don't have it installed currently but doesn't it use /opt/lampp/htdocs as the root folder?

    I'm a little confused - are you trying to install php, mysql and apache or are you looking to install the xampp package from apachefriends?

    If you're looking just to test out some web dev, the easier route may be to set up xampp. Instructions for just about everything you will need is listed there.

    This is what the slocate thing does for me

    Code:
    slocate: warning: database /var/lib/slocate/slocate.db' is more than 8 days old
    slocate: fatal error: set_path_head: path_head len <= 0: 0

    Run this as root (it takes a while):
    Code:
    updatedb &
    This updates the database wherein slocate searches for locations of files. Then you can try again...

    ...But I doubt it will come up with anything on your Vector box. What exactly did you install??

    If it's just for kicks, maybe you want to look into thttpd. I remember it being very easy to set up. It was in the Vec5.8 repo, but I can't find it in the 5.9 repo.

    Yeah, that's the PID number for the process running in the background. The '&' sign at the end of the command sends the process to the background. I'm sorry, it's just a habit of mine to send processes that take a while to the back. That makes it easier to do other stuff in the mean time.

    But I'm curious, what version of Vector are you running?
