  This package provides a developer environment to create your web projects
  on your Amiga. Just like the well known LAMP package for Linux, it includes
  the HTTP (web) server "Apache" with compiled in support for the scripting
  language "PHP" and the database server "MySQL".

  In this version the dependencies to AmiCygnix are removed. Also the structure
  of the directories and files is easier to understand.

  But it is not only interesting for web developers. Now you can run web app-
  lications locally on your Amiga, for example the database administration tool
  "phpMyAdmin" (http://www.phpmyadmin.net) or the picture database "Coppermine"
  (http://coppermine-gallery.net) - just to mention a few.

  With the included interpreter for "PHP" you can also create your own tools.
  "PHP" is easy to understand and with it's extensions it is very powerful.

  Finally the database server "MySQL" gives you the oportunity to manage your
  data and share it with other users. External applications (e.g. IODBC) can use
  it as a database backend.

       open-source HTTP server for modern operating systems including UNIX and
       Windows NT. The goal of this project is to provide a secure, efficient
       and extensible server that provides HTTP services in sync with the
       current HTTP standards.

  * myApacheStarter 2.00

    A tool with Reaction GUI to manage some important settings of the Apache
    HTTP server and to launch and stop the server.

    Hint: This version of myApacheStarter can handle this Apache implementation
          and also the old version 1.3.33 available on OS4-depot.

    Written by Michael Christoph (http://www.meicky-soft.de).

  * mySQLcontrol 1.00

    A tool to manage MySQL databases (similar to phpMyAdmin) and to launch and
    stop the MySQL server.

    Written by Michael Christoph (http://www.meicky-soft.de).

2. How to launch and stop

  There are several ways to launch and stop the above servers:

  * While installation you will be asked, if the servers should be launched at
    the system startup. So there is no need to launch them manually.
    Before you switch of your Amiga, you should stop the servers by launching
    the script "Stop_AAMP.bat" in "AAMP:".

  * You can start the script "Start_AAMP.bat" in "AAMP:". Like above, you
    should stop the servers by launching the script "Stop_AAMP.bat".

  * You can start and stop the servers with the tools "myApacheStarter" and

3. Documenation

  If you want to know more about Apache, type "http://localhost/manual" into
  the address line of your webbrowser. The Apache HTTP server must be active.
  I suggest to use the OWB webbrowser.

  There is only a few documentation about MySQL included in this package. In
  "AAMP:MySQL" you can find the Unix info file "mysql.info", which can be viewed
  with the tool "Next" available on the Aminet.
  I suggest to install the MySQL manager "phpMyAdmin-3.2.1" (or later), which
  has a nice online help.

  For informations about PHP, open the webpage "http://www.php.net/manual" in
  your browser.

4. Important files and directories

  * The default location of the Apache documents is:

    Can be changed with "myApacheStarter".

  * The configuration files of the Apache HTTP server are located in:

  * The default location of the MySQL databases is:

  * The MySQL configuration file "my.cnf" is located in:

  * The PHP configuration file "php.ini" is located in:

5. Activating the MySQL storage engine InnoDB

  InnoDB is deactivated by default. If you want to activate this engine, open
  the file "AAMP:Common/etc/my.cnf" in an editor, add a sharp symbol (#) before
  "skip_innodb" and save it again.

  After a relaunch of the server, the server automatically creates some files.
  The integrity of these files will be checked on every start of the MySQL
  server. This is because the server cannot make a clear shutdown, when InnoDB
  is activated (See also section "Problems").

6. Tested web applications

    application         homepage                             status

  * xoops 2.5.0b        http://www.xoops.org                 has problems

7. Problems

  Serious problems:

  * Unfortunately the Apache mod_ssl module is not working. It is not usable
    at the moment. This will hopefully be fixed in a next release.

  Minor problems:

  * The web server does not support subprocesses. As this package is not meant
    for productive use, this is not really a problem. Development and using
    local web applications is no problem.

  * The MySQL server cannot be stopped, when InnoDB tables are enabled. This
    type of table is only useful, if you want to use the server for productive
    jobs - same as above. You can work with InnoDB tables, I did not have any
    problem. But they are always checked on server startup, because of the
    unfinished shutdown. On the other hand, I don't see any reason to use this
    kind of tables.

  * It is possible, that the MySQL server cannot be stopped, after a first
    request was processed. It should not cause serious problems.

8. Bug reports

  Please send bug reports to "eds()rz-online.de" or post them to the bug tracker
  on OS4-depot.

9. Installation

  Doubleclick on the "Install" icon in the unpacked AAMP package.
  Everything will be installed automatically. Please follow the
  instructions of the installer script.

  While installation two external packages will also be installed. This is:

  * SystemV_IPC (sysvipc.library) from Peter Bengtsson

  * http-handler from Chris Young. Offers the DOS drivers "HTTP:" and "HTTPS:".

  Both packages are provided in the "Contrib" drawer.

  Please do not install by hand!!
