Use the following to install apache:
sudo apt-get install apache2
Add the following to your samba configuration, if you want to manage the website from your desktop, and restart samba:[www] comment = /var/www on Raspberry Pi
path = /var/www
writeable = yes
guest ok = no
sudo /etc/init.d/samba restart
Give the pi user access:
sudo chown -R pi:pi /var/www/html
Confirm that you can browse to your website http://home-hub
and create and edit files in the html document root.
The next task is to install PHP, PEAR, MDB2 and MDB2 pgsql.
sudo apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5 php-pear php5-pgsql
sudo pear install MDB2
sudo pear install pear/MDB2#pgsql
The best way to check that PHP is correctly installed is to create a small script, info.php, that runs the phpinfo() function and place it in the var/www/html directory.
<?php // Show all information phpinfo(); ?>
Browse to this page and if PHP is working you will see a long list of details about the installation.
If all that checks out we can move on to testing database access from our website.
