Note:Currently in Beta - expect changes for the next few weeks. The core is built so updates will be made available as pet packages. Because of the SFS backup feature you can save all changes by pets into a new SFS of your own. No need to loose any of your settings! That's right its a rolling release of sorts.
-=[ Features ]=-
SFS backup - backup your current lamp dir with all its settings into a SFS for easy backup or derivative creation and migration.
-=[ For the novice ]=-
If your looking to run a website with a CM (content manager) like WordPress this is for you. SFS addons for these types of things will be made to extend the functions
-=[ Support ]=-
I do care. I started this project back in Late Feb 2013. I want to add support for all sorts of stuff. Let me know what ya want, or have issues with. If you find a bug or better ya fix it post it here on the forums.
-=[ SPOT ]=-
Any program that is set to use a port over 1024 will automatically run in spot with a restart of that program. With proper port forwards to your router you can run the entire LAMP 4 Puppy in user SPOT. This way if your server gets hacked they can only access any thing in the spot dir and not the rest of your server.
-=[ Made 4 Puppy ]=-
You will find a webpage that sends you to GUI control needed for easy navigation of your server. Webmin, phpMyAdmin, and a ports in use list so you see whats going on in your server.
-=[ New releases ]=-
Every 4-8 months depending on the releases of stable packages I will build a new version. All you have to do is Migrate your Database files and http folder and you will be running on the latest software.
DOWNLOAD yes these links are hosted from a LAMP 4 Puppy server !!!
You can now access it all from a nice webpage located at http://http://localhost:2001/
all logins set as 'admin' or 'root', with a password of 'password'
you can change this in:
Put all your html or files in the DIR
this is its home folder for web hosting
I wanted it out of my pupsave file not eating up space. For my server I symbolicly linked it out of my pup to the hdd.
Unless you know how to chown or chmod dont put it linked to another HDD. keep it on the same drive your pet is at.
Yes that's right. run the command in shell ' mlampbackup '
It will take you through a script that will take every thing in your lamp dir and turn it into a sfs !!! so you can take your stuff with you or backup any changes you make.
Don't forget to download the lamp_derivitive.pet if you wish to have LAMP run automatically when you restart your OS.
Besides the obvious of running in spot where you can Ive also set webmin to port 2000 and built it with SSL. Just encase you need to host it outside of your local network.
Port 2001 is where the webmin gui is at. I recommend you do not port forward 2001. PHPMyAdmin is a security hole even in SSL. If you have to port forward this I would just delete or move PHPMyadmin. If ya just have to have access to PHPMy admin then you can setup a Virtual host in apache to SSL and set ssl for it. I will not explain how to do this. Your on your own here
Running as root or spot
If you use any port below 1024 that program will run as root. Set all ports above 1024 and it will run as spot.
Webmin will not run as spot unless all ports for all programs are set higher than 1024!
This lamp is built ontop of Bitnami. See http://www.bitnami.com for more information
Bitnami is great but it don't like puppy all that much. It comes down to root and spot. So I take the bitnami core LAMP and strip out the mysql, scripts and all the other stuff that does not play nice or work. Then I build it all back ontop of the bitnami core.
If you are interested in doing this for some other project PM me and ill send you all my build notes
If you can't tell this depend list pretty much tells ya that this thing will run just about any thing that's currently popular:)
