A simple CMS :: System dependencies

    Supported Servers

    You will need a web server, PHP >= 5.3, and MySQL

    Working HTTP servers

    It will work with Apache2 on any *nix system. It works with Apache2 on windows, but it is not well tested. It also works with the CLI build in Server for PHP >= 5.4 (this is just the servers tested). I guess it will also work on ISS, and Apache2 on AppleOS etc.

    Bash LAMP install script

    The following is a simple shell scripts, The first script will check and install all needed packages, which means a complete server setup including Apache2, MySQL, PHP >= 5.3, memcached, and git. And also a few PHP5 specific modules like e.g. APC (cache), GD (images) etc. For server setup on windows see this article

    In order to install we need apache2, mysql-server, and php >= 5.3, git and a few more programs. You can run the following script on a recent Debian like system, e.g. Ubuntu - or just check to see what you might be missing. If you have these programs you should not need anything:

    aptitude install apache2-mpm-prefork
    aptitude install mysql-server
    aptitude install libapache2-mod-php5
    # enable mod rewrite
    a2enmod rewrite
    # enable default image transformation tool
    # GD
    aptitude install php5-gd
    # install php5 module for mysql
    aptitude install php5-mysql
    # default configuration uses memcache. If you don't install this
    # you will have to change your config/config.ini file after install
    # and comment out: session_handler = 'memcache'
    aptitude install memcached
    # install the php5 module for memcache
    aptitude install php5-memcache
    # install apc cache for storing all files in memory
    aptitude install php-apc
    # for doing development - all modules can (should) be installed with
    # the { git} commands
    aptitude install git
    # We need some pear packages. Install the base package
    # From version 1.9x the pear packages is included
    # aptitude install php-pear

    Note about PHP built in CLI server

    On the CLI server the only thing you need is to change the files/ path owner to who runs the CLI server. Otherwise there is no issues in my 5 minutes test, quite surprised to see how well it worked, it routes all requests correct (in the same way as mod_rewrite for apache2).

    If you have set your server name to e.g. coscms, then cd coscms/htdocs and run the following command:

    php -S coscms:8000
