I think it would be much better if a server desktop is 64-bit.

James TanJames Tan,

There’s a 64-bit version at—2. I’ve also added it to the description so it’s easier to find.

most servers don’t have a “graphical” uhm… i think you mean GUI.

snowcrusher dimisnowcrusher dimi,

double facepalm (one for me, one for you :P)…servers don’t need a UI cause the administrators of them know how to use a PC correctly.

Tashfeen ChaudhryTashfeen Chaudhry,

Efstathios IosifidisEfstathios Iosifidis,


I’m trying to create an appliance that will apache2 and mysql will run after installation.
Until now I managed to run only apache2.
I can start mysql manually but I would like to be automatic.


Andrew Angelo BarrientosAndrew Angelo Barrientos,

when you create one, at the portion where you will upload the MySQL there must be a checkbox where it says: start MySQL automatically, but there are some choices where there is no checkbox that you can start MySQL automatically

Frank FischerFrank Fischer,

how i can add more users to use ftp?
like ftpuser1 only allow upload to /srv/www/htdocs/ftpuser1
and ftpuser2 only allow upload to /srv/www/htdocs/ftpuser2
any ideas?

James TanJames Tan,

@Frank I’m not sure which FTP program you are using and what’s your exact use case. Maybe the guide at helps?

Sukhjinder KainthSukhjinder Kainth,

Amrit RathiAmrit Rathi,

thanks for this! i’ve been looking for it.. cloned and added KDE and jdk and usual stuff.. :)


Hi, I’m new to all of this. I opted to install this on virtualbox on my mac rather than parallels. I got the virtual machine to connect to the internet and I have access to the server from my host.

I’m stuck at loading the shared folders. I chose install guest additions from the menu, and can see the iso being loaded. But I have no idea how to mount the cdrom.

So I used yast to install virtualbox-guest-tools.

Now running “mount -t vboxsf cg -o uid=1000 cg” gives me an error saying mount.vboxsf was not found. Is there a way I can mount the cdrom? or go go somewhere for help?

Thanks a ton for the excellent lamp server! works on it’s first try!

Sesse GipflmüzSesse Gipflmüz,

hi, i cant find htdocs folder. Am i right, this should be some where?


where did you find it?

James TanJames Tan,

It’s in /srv/www/htdocs.

Rafael BelmonteRafael Belmonte,

For those people who want a GUI: IceWM, LXDE, or XFCE are light and do not waste much space nor much resources.
But are they really needed in a server?


ok it was the terminal prompt i got around it, i am new to linux, i am not able to get to the GUI any tutorials for openSUSE LAMP

James TanJames Tan,

It’s just a regular Linux / openSUSE terminal.

Arun JosephArun Joseph,

Can any one tell me how do I run this OS with the help of VM Ware?? I mean the installation notes!

James TanJames Tan,

Try looking at the guides on the wiki

yo staryo star,



Is it possiable to add a simple GUI cause thats what I’m doing.

noah stridenoah stride,

bold italic strikethrough text cool bean looking for lamp for ages that for once less setup is needed


nice os congratulations





u say servers dont have GUI’s then what do u call the interface for windows 2k3 server, 2k8 server, 2k server??

Whacko WhiteyWhacko Whitey,

Real Linux servers do not have guis man, and Windows Server operating systems are resource hogs compared to a nice frugal Linux server O.S.

And you call it old timey junk? wow dude… you need to learn some cli. Good thing you don’t work on routers and switches!


Just because Windows Server has a GUI, doesn’t mean every server has to have one too.

James TanJames Tan,

Just install your preferred window manager (eg. XFCE, IceWM, GNOME, KDE, …) if you want to have a GUI.

Ice Software UKIce Software UK,

What do you mean, go into software and select desktop, then what ever GUI you want. If thats the answer i dont know if it will work i did try but i messed up =(. The reason for me asking cos im doing an apache web server

James TanJames Tan,

Actually, LAMP is the correct term.

Patrick StewartPatrick Stewart,

Technically you could be correct however LAMPP is most also valid because you have added perl or python. LAMP typically refers to a stack that has Linux, Apache, MySql and PHP Hence LAMP when you add Perl or Python you get LAMPP. XAMPP has a LAMPP stack and there are a few others. Just Saying…

Trevor RayTrevor Ray,

Finally someone with some actual sense. _

Lamb PoastLamb Poast,

Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP (plus Perl & Python). = LAMPPP !?!?!?!?!?!


runs horrible on my horrible system …lol

Kevin AKevin A,

Thanks does this include developement environments for php and sql

Jackson RobertsJackson Roberts,

Does it have a GUI? If someone could make a server OS with a GUI it would be revolutionary.


The reason servers don’t have GUI’s is to save space. The server is usually controlled by another computer with a GUI (Some FTP Software should do it). A Server OS with a GUI wouldn’t be good at all, infact it would probably fail. And anyway – most of the software included with this OS (and other server software) is controlled by the command line so a GUI would be pointless.

WizePC (Orb)WizePC (Orb),

I actually agree with Jackson because then non-techie people could easily mange it.

Alan CotaAlan Cota,

Great appliance! Tks! =)


Is apache configured with fastcgi?


would you consider adding SSL to apache? Some exemplary site?
