How to setup PHP under fedora

The following solution to install Apache, MySQL and PHP was checked under Fedora 15 distribution.

First, you need to install the relevant packages:

su #for root login, enter password when prompted
yum install mysql-server
service mysqld start
mysqladmin -u root password <set your wished password here>
yum install phpmyadmin

Now, you need to start the relevant services:

su #for root login, 
service mysqld restart
service httpd restart

This should be done each time you need to use unless you want those services to start with your OS. In such case, you should type:

su #for root login
chkconfig --add httpd
chkconfig httpd on
chkconfig --add mysqld
chkconfig mysqld on

In order to test your PHP files, write a simple script:

<?php phpinfo() ?>

and place it in /var/www/html. Look at http://localhost/phpinfo.php to check if the script works.

You can also access the phpMyAdmin by navigating to http://localhost/phpmyadmin
