having some issues with repo's for centos and ubuntu. and in getting updated versions of AMP software onto the VPS. primary issue is with conflicts. and/or setting stuff one way vs another way.
i came across following link https://www.virgohacks.net/install-apache-2-4-mysql-5-6-php-5-5-source-ubuntu-14-04/ went through it. then realized i need some additional stuff... and removal of extra crud. for apache, mysql, and php.
quick note: iztamar (hope i got your name right) i am starting to see more and more mariaDB vs mysql, more i search. interesting it is. though still wanting to avoid lightspeed, ngix, mariaDB. they are still above my head.
my initial current ubuntu install is getting pretty ugly, of failed attempts and then attempts to uninstall and reinstall. along with having some "preset" stuff that was set by the VPS ubuntu image of the OS.
apache2.4 = seemed to go ok, but was hoping for information to set on the "./configure ((options here))"
mysql = i think i am better off using "apt get" even mysql website denotes using pre-install stuff. running into about 20 different errors / warnings that come up during "./configure", "make", and "make install" mysql documentation for "./configure ((options))" is a tad lacking. and i honestly do not know suggested configuration options to use / set.
php5.5.22 and php5.6.x = yikes! so much to sift through for "./configure ((options))" finally started narrowing things down. but having some issues with "pecl" starting to realize not really worth third party "pecl" extensions. everything that use to be a "pecl" extension has been re-adjusted and put into php5.5 or above directly within the source code already.
some additional issues... is with "compliers / packages" required to compile source with ./configure, make, make install, make test, make check. i have just been going directly to xyz.com website using a wget xyz.tar.gz, then gzip the xyz.tar.gz, and running a make, and make install. the sudo apt-get install xyz seems to be giving older software versions of the compliers / packages "hence" manual installing them :/ so i can compile the newer versions of apache, mysql, php.
to above.... just want a straight cut and dry installations. with just what is needed for moodle 2.7, 2.8, 2.9 no need for vhost, and handling multi websites. easy enough just to drop www.mysite.com/moodle1 www.mysite.com/moodle2 or moodle1.mysite.com or moodle2.mysite.com
any suggestions for....
./configure ((options)) for apache2.4, mysql5.5, php5.5 or php5.6?
any suggestions for dealing with extra compilers / packages / libraries?
