Switching Off LAMP, Turning On LAAP [Part 1]

    By: Paul Vero on Apr 02, 2013

    The concept of LAMP (Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP) is a bundle of free software. The combination provides a cost effective solution to create enterprise-level web servers, acting as application servers, to access data in the database. In the case of LAMP, MySQL is the residing database. In this article, we replace MySQL with ASE and come up with the acronym of LAAP. The apache server will serve up the applications, written in PHP, and with the help of the ASE Database Driver for PHP in the ASE Software Developers Kit (SDK), the applications access ASE. All of this runs on the Linux operating system. I’ll be using Red Hat 6 for the demonstration when I configure, build and install the components on the machine. I won’t cover the ASE installation, assuming you’ll have this knowledge already.

    This will be a two-part article. Part one covers the Apache HTTP server and its aspects of configuration (for the build), building and installation. Then it’s configuring the server to run some simple tests and verify a job well done.

    In part two a PHP review is in order (referencing to some other articles I’ve written) and configuring Apache for PHP and Open Client. This enables us to write some simple PHP applications to access the ASE. The applications will be simple but relevant to the web page in use of forms and other aspects of HTML. Let’s get started with the Apache server.
