Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Normally I'm not a person who likes to use a lot of front-end
automation tools when setting up a server; my preference is to dive
in and apply a little elbow grease directly to configuration
"Now, I'm not so sure that that this is the most efficient
approach after playing around with Apache Toolbox."
Direct from the Apache Toolbox Web site: 'Apache Toolbox
provides a means to easily compile Apache with SSL, PHP (v4 or v3),
MySQL, ZendOptimizer, mod_auth_nds, mod_dynvhost, WebDAV,
mod_fastcgi, mod_gzip, mod_layout, mod_throttle, mod_accessref,
mod_auth_sys, mod_bandwidth, mod_auth_ldap, mod_roaming, mod_perl,
mod_jserv, OpenLDAP, and the latest gd libraries with PNG support.
It is fully customizable and menu driven. Everything is compiled
from source. It checks for RPMs that might cause problems and uses
wget to automatically download the source if it's missing.'"
