 Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP, Perl and KNOPPIX

* What's this LAMPPIX thing?

 LAMPPIX is a Live CD with the web server Apache, the database MySQL and the
programming languages PHP and Perl. It's based on Klaus Knopper's KNOPPIX and
Damn Small Linux. LAMPPIX allows you i.e. to easily run your PHP-driven web
pages off a CD-ROM.

* What's root's password?

The password is set to 'lamppix'.

* How can I include my own web pages?

Step 1: your web server's document root
- Pack all your documents into the tarball htdocs.tar.gz, i.e.:
# tar czf htdocs.tar.gz *

Step 2: MySQL databases (optional)
- Export your web server's databases as MySQL dumps. To do this, you could
use a program such as mysqldump or PHPMyAdmin. Save the dump, following the
scheme: name_of_the_database.sql
# mysqldump datenbank > database.sql
- pack all MySQL dumps into the tarball mysql-dumps.tar.gz
# tar czf mysql-dumps.tar.gz *.sql

Step 3: write a shell script (optional)
- Write a shell script and name it postinstall.sh
- This script is run after the databases and the web server's content were
installed.
- the document root directory is /opt/lampp/htdocs.
- This function is useful to set the access permission of your files or do
other actions during the boot procedure.

Step 4:
- Copy the files htdocs.tar.gz, mysql-dumps.tar.gz and postinstall.sh into
the directory 'www' of your CD-ROM.
