XAMPP, LAMP, localhost on ChaletOS is it possible?

Post by madmalc on Wed Jun 08, 2016 9:56 am

I really like ChaletOS , it's almost a perfect replacement for Windows, especially those who are still running XP. However it is a bit more complicated to get some of the bits working. I;m on a 32bit system and I'm going nuts trying to set up a localhost for Wordpress development. Does anyone know a simple way to achieve this? I dream of finding a Linux Distro that includes it as standard.

have you installed wordpress? or are you looking for installation instructions? In case you haven't you can find instructions https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-wordpress-on-ubuntu-12-04

I think you want to install a LAMP server, so maybe a better link woould be this Ubuntu LAMP install and then follow james's link.

Hi there,

Thanks to both of you, I really like the approach of the LAMP server. I followed step #1 and the step #2 no problem. When I tried to get the php as per step #3 there's a problem. This si what my terminal window message is:
malcolmd@malcolmd-AMILO-Pi-1505:~$ sudo apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5[sudo] password for malcolmd:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package libapache2-mod-php5 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

Package php5 is not available, but is referred to by another package.

E: Package 'php5' has no installation candidate
E: Package 'libapache2-mod-php5' has no installation candidate
malcolmd@malcolmd-AMILO-Pi-1505:~$

any thoughts?

php5 is outdated. Now there's php7.0

I searched on synaptic package manager and I saw 2 packages:

libapache2-mod-php
libapache2-mod-php7.0

Try getting those either with apt or with synaptic package manager.
You may as well get both Smile

for php I see a 'php' and a 'php7.0' in synaptic too. Try getting both.

If you don't have synaptic package manager it is available on the Ubuntu software center or on apt by typing 'sudo apt-get install synaptic'

Hope this helps!

one thing I would check is to make sure the apt-get database is up to date, in a terminal run the following...
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
when that has finished try installing php again.
If you had some errors when trying to do the dist-upgrade first run
Code:
sudo apt-get -f install
this should fix any broken dependencies and then you can install php.

very true especially on new installs. Although i think synaptic will do it for you when you try to install something.

I think synaptic reloads the db only if you tell it to, but haven't checked lately and it could have changed.Smile

I know that on Synaptic for Debian there's a reload button. But "apt update" or "apt-get update" work well too Smile
