Creating an oBAMP Stack: OpenBSD, Apache, MySQL, and PHP : Page 5

The OpenBSD, Apache, MySQL, and PHP (oBAMP) platform provides a powerful point of departure for the creation of dynamic web content. Learn the procedures for running OpenBSD 4.4 with Apache SSL, MySQL 5, and PHP 5.

Improving OpenBSD
One way you can help improve OpenBSD is to send the output of dmesg to one of your email addresses:

$ sudo dmesg | mail -s "Dell P-3 Laptop Works Great" you@youremailaddress

Then forward that email message to dmesg@openbsd.org.



Your oBAMP Platform Lives!
By following the preceding procedures, you now have a computer running OpenBSD 4.4 with Apache SSL, MySQL 5, and PHP 5. For today's increasingly hostile Internet environment, the oBAMP platform provides a powerful point of departure for the creation of dynamic web content. This article should prove useful for exploring the world of PHP development in a somewhat secured environment. By default the OpenBSD PHP package uses the Suhosin patch, which protects the Apache server from several known vulnerabilities and from weaknesses in the PHP core itself.

Using mySQLi for PHP-to-MySQL database interaction offers improvements in both system speed and connection security. Meanwhile, PHP5 enables the web application developers to use object-oriented programming techniques. If nothing else, you would be wise to run OpenBSD for system backup—that is, if you value your data at more than $50 USD.
