XAMPP in Sun Solaris x86

I was looking for some ready package of Apache, mysql, php and phpmyadmin. In linux there is LAMP. For my Sun Solaris x86 I headed for SAMP. After a long time googling I couldn’t find any ready to install product. In XAMPP, there is a version for Solaris SPARC no x86. But, there was a beta version for Sun Solaris x86. I found it here http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-beta.html . Thanks to Kai Seidler for helping me out. Coz, when I tried to install the sparc version on x86, it gave me an error, it also provided a e-mail address to contact. So, I mailed and in reply he gave me beta version link, thanks for quick response.

Installing Postgres Plus 9.0.2 on CentOS 5.5 64 bit

I wanted to install Postgre SQL on my CentOS. So, I went for Enterprisedb which is Postgres Plus 9.0.2

I went to http://www.enterprisedb.com/products-services-training/pgdownload to download 64bit version of Postgres Plus. I downloaded ‘postgresplus-9.0.2-1-linux-x64.bin’.

I found that there is some pre requisite to install postgre. I have to install gcc and other libraries. So, I issued ..

yum install bison byacc gcc cc

Now, I need to install  unixODBC. I tried to install it via yum, but it didn’t worked with my downloaded postgre. I want to http://www.unixodbc.org/download.html and downloaded ‘unixODBC-2.3.0.tar.gz’.

My motive is to perform a RND. Installing Oracle 10g in CentOS 5.5

I will do ir in Virtual Box 3.2 . So, Virtual Box + CentOS + Oracle. It’s a new combination for me. At first I have to create a virtual machine. The actual machine i’m is not good though, its Dell Optiplex 330 which means it has core2duo with  2G ram. Oracle alone needs 2G ram. Lets see what can be managed.
