Bug#403134: apache2: does not work with CGI, PHP, Perl, mySQL, etc.
Subject: apache2: does not work with CGI, PHP, Perl, mySQL, etc.
Justification: breaks unrelated software
*** Please type your report below this line ***
I tested apache2 and the 3 apache1 versions on both KNOPPIX-5.02-CD and
my working machine with Debian testing. None worked with CGI, PHP,
Perl, mySQL, phpmyadmin, and many other things. Apache2 was the worst
by denying even access to http://localhost. Changing the configuration
did not heall the system.
I could correct the whole mess by using XAMPP of
http://www.apachefriends.org/. This is a combination of working
versions of Apache2, PHP, mySQL, and ftp such that the CGI, PHP , Perl,
and phpmyadmin really work. I tested XAMPP both on KNOPPIX (with
permanent saving) and Debian testing - with full success. After the
former torture with the Debian Apache* I am really happy to have found
this free software product.
I propose that you either change towards XAMPP or at least try to learn
from these guys. The actual trash of Debian's Apache and related
software is not usable.
