out of that G4 if you install Linux without a GUI. OSX really requires more to run the GUI than you should be willing to sacrifice if you want to get the machine serving PHP code through Apache. I would recommend installing a LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL PHP) server. A really easy way to do this would be to go:
and download the server version compiled for PPC. Install this on your machine and you will be cookin' like crazy. It won't have a GUI so your config will need to be either 1) Command Line 2) Webmin (http://www.webmin.com/) really easy and full-featured browser-based config 3) Install a light-weight GUI like XFCE
does anyone know if / how to set up an eMac as a web server..? I just got 2 and want to start serving my own web sites, just playing at this stage but would like to have a few up and running ASAP. Later would like to run dynamic sites with PHP and mySQL.
I've done a few searches but haven't found a how to guide yet... I know Apache web server is built into MacOS X 10.3. so would be keen to use that and a couple of domain names I own. Also do I need to set anything special up with my ISP..?
Will be running on EMAC - PPC G4 - 1.25GHz - 768MB with Mac OS 10.3
Thanks again and as always your help is much appreciated.
