Apache2... what's with the hush? Do we use mpm_event, mpm_prefork, or mpm_worker?

PHP... php-exif, php-fileinfo, and php-openssl... these does not exists in the packages.

Database... CREATE USER 'username'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password'; <-- Do we leave 'localhost' as is or change to respectable '' or ''?

Cache... php-apcu, php-memcache, php7.2-opcache. Which is recommended?

Also, what's with "apt-get" fuss? Time to move on... shorten to "apt" which has been around at least six years, we would see progress bar that "apt-get" don't have.

    • dude.  then re-write the documentation and present a draft here :D
      thats like saying canon takes better pictures than nikon. :D

      I'll quote the man-page:

      The apt command is meant to be pleasant for end users and does not need
      to be backward compatible like apt-get(8). Therefore some options are

      · The option DPkg::Progress-Fancy is enabled.
      · The option APT::Color is enabled.
      · A new list command is available similar to dpkg --list.
      · The option upgrade has --with-new-pkgs enabled by default.

      also, to be helpful, the packages you mentioned all have installation candidates in Ubuntu 18.04.  and if you don't already have an appropriate version of openssl, there are plenty to choose from, including vanilla.  "openssl"  you may need to update your apt sources if you are not seeing them.  the php files you referenced are part of the php7.2...

      • Nope, Nikon takes better pictures. 😛 Truth be told... both have pros and cons. Better to have both!




        Ubuntu 16.04 to Ubuntu 20.04 and Debian 8 to Debian 10. These extensions package does NOT exists. Therefore, "Tested on Ubuntu 18.04" is bullshit and updated 5 days ago?

        In 2009, started off with cPanel. Switched to CentOS with Plesk in 2012. Then Ubuntu with Virtualmin since 2015. Started today, no longer want to deal with web panels... straight to command-line. Mostly done with installation of Apache, MariaDB. And PHP, did this instead...

        sudo apt install php libapache2-mod-php php-mysql php-common php-curl php-gd php-json php-mbstring php-zip

        php -i | grep -i exif
        php -i | grep -i fileinfo
        php -i | grep -i openssl

        Can confirm these php extensions are already installed/enabled.

        • well.  when i did apt-cache search for the files..they all had installation candidates.  i'm running ubuntu 18.04..
          not interested in arguing about camera stuff, i have a photography background since i was 6 and we'd be here all year talking about this :)

          plesk and cPanel both make me want to never touch a computer again...
          command line only. wise choice.

          well, this should help a bit.. you can see here exif package lives with php72..
          anyway, check back with us in about a week after you've got apache set up.
          most importantly, have fun. :D don't code while sleepy, it makes for 10x as much shit to fix later.. :D
