Make your intranet more productive with XAMPP

Filed under
HowTos

A phenomenal amount of information is being managed by open source content management systems (CMS), wikis, and blogs. However, most of these content management systems work on the popular but difficult to configure LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack, which makes setting up one fall within an administrator's domain. You can simplify your hosting tasks by turning to XAMPP, a full-featured Apache, MySQL, PHP, and Perl stack that works on Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, and Solaris. It can give you a fully integrated server environment within minutes.

The current version of XAMPP, 1.5.3a, is a 51MB package that includes Apache 2.2.2, MySQL 5.0.21, PHP 5.1.4 and 4.4.2, Perl 5.8.7, phpMyAdmin 2.8.1, Webalizer 2.01, and several other libraries, modules, and utilities that ensure XAMPP will work with any open source CMS. Download the package and install it from root with a command like sudo tar zxvf xampp-linux-1.5.3a.tar.gz -C /opt. After that, the command /opt/lampp/lampp start as root should start the various sub-servers. Pointing your browser to http://localhost will take you to the XAMPP control panel.

Full Story.

Nothing to see here - move along.

From the article:
"XAMPP isn't designed for rolling out on a production server."

So in other words, it's a nice toy, but don't use it for any realworld projects.

Ryzen 7 2700X CPUFreq Scaling Governor Benchmarks On Ubuntu Linux

With this week's Ryzen 5 2600X + Ryzen 7 2700X benchmarks some thought the CPUFreq scaling driver or rather its governors may have been limiting the performance of these Zen+ CPUs, so I ran some additional benchmarks this weekend. Those launch-day Ryzen 5 2600X / Ryzen 7 2700X Ubuntu Linux benchmarks were using the "performance" governor, but some have alleged that the performance governor may now actually hurt AMD systems... Ondemand, of course, is the default CPUFreq governor on Ubuntu and most other Linux distributions. Some also have said the "schedutil" governor that makes use of the kernel's scheduler utilization data may do better on AMD. So I ran some extra benchmarks while changing between CPUFreq's ondemand (default), performance (normally the best for performance, and what was used in our CPU tests), schedutil (the newest option), and powersave (if you really just care about conserving power).
