Specific instructions for Linux Gentoo distribution

On Gentoo all packages are compiled from source.
To proceed, you need permissions to run emerge. You should use the generic options -auvDN to compile packages in order to see all relevant USE flags and include all dependencies.

You have to set specific USE flags then re-compile the relevant packages.

PhPeace doesn't require specific settings for compiling Apache. A typical configuration from /etc/make.conf is shown below

APACHE2_MODULES="auth_dbm auth_anon auth_digest authz_host authn_dbm authn_default authz_dbm authz_default auth_basic authn_file authz_groupfile authz_owner authz_user alias file-cache echo charset-lite cache disk-cache mem-cache ext-filter case_filter case-filter-in deflate filter mime-magic cern-meta expires headers usertrack unique-id proxy proxy-connect proxy-ftp proxy-http info include cgi cgid dav dav_fs vhost-alias speling rewrite log_config logio env setenvif mime status autoindex asis negotiation dir imap actions userdir so"

Please note the following flags:

  • deflate (to compress content before delivery, you probably want this)
  • rewrite (to enable the URL rewrite engine)
  • proxy and proxy-connect (used by rewrite)

You may find additional information on the official Gentoo documentation page

Once you are done with your USE flags, compile Apache 2.2

# emerge -auvDN www-servers/apache

MySQL 5.1 installation is done without any specific requirements.

# emerge -auvDN dev-db/mysql

For PHP, set the version you are compiling for in /etc/make.conf


and the following USE flags in /etc/portage/package.use

dev-lang/php cli ctype curl fileinfo iconv imap json mysql pcre posix session simplexml soap sockets ssl tokenizer unicode xml xsl zip zlib

Then compile PHP 5.3

# emerge -auvDN dev-lang/php

and PEAR

# emerge -auvDN dev-php/pear # emerge -auvDN dev-php/PEAR-PEAR

Install curl 7.2

# emerge -auvDN net-misc/curl

For ImageMagick, set the following USE flags in /etc/portage/package.use

media-gfx/imagemagick jpeg jpeg2k tiff png tiff wmf zlib

and compile ImageMagick 6.6

# emerge -auvDN media-gfx/imagemagick

If you want to use server-side video/audio encoding, set the following USE flags in /etc/portage/package.use

media-video/ffmpeg encode mp3

then compile ffmpeg

# emerge -auvDN media-video/ffmpeg

If you want to use APC cache

# emerge -auvDN dev-php5/pecl-apc

For upload progress information
