First off-- This is a serious discussion. Please don't do/say the following: "What's the point" "This is stupid" "What a waste of time" "It can't be done" "WAHhhh...it will waste your battery/wifi/disk writing" "SQLite works fine" Or any derivative of this I will report ALL nasty comments and derogatory statements to the mods. Be respectful. Yes yes, I know...there's already THREADS FOR THIS, but look closely and you will see they are outdated by 3 years. 2007 and iOS 1.0/Installer.app was a LONG time ago. Also, none of them cover how to get MySQL working. Only PHP and Apache. Plus, the packages they reference are gone. I need this in order to demo sites for clients and to have a development machine at all times so I can test new code, hook to a db and more. This is not a hobby. As of now I have PHP and lighttpd (plus 'lighttpd SBSettings') installed via Cydia. (note: PHP installs via iPHPPod). I was able to find an iPhone friendly version of MySQL here: LINK (directions for installing are included in a readme) Now, that said PHP does not see MySQL. PHP doesn't have the MySQL module/extension installed. It only has a PDO for attaching to SQLite. Problem is, most web apps (Wordpress, etc) need MySQL to work. SQLite doesn't have the same parameters as MySQL. In fact i find ZERO information on how to attach it or use it. There's no username/password/server address like with MySQL. BUT THAT DOESN'T MATTER. I do NOT want to use SQLite. I can't. Besides, it's slow. I already tried it. Note: Wordpress does have a PLUGIN that allows you to use SQlite, but what about all the other apps I want to install? No options. phpmyadmin also doesn't work. Without MySQL it won't work. It can't. So, the point of this thread is: How do we attach PHP/Apache/MySQL and have a full running webserver on our iDevice? I have searched for 3 days and my Google-Fu is strong. However, nothing relative to this exists. It seems odd there's no package for this, anywhere. There used to be a great tutorial HERE, but all the files are gone. So, let's get this going. I know someone has to be interested. I have included a screenshot of phpinfo running to prove it is a working server. Now it needs MySQL to be a better, more usable, server.
