"This article describes how to add PHP language and MySQL database functionality to OpenBSD. It outlines one method of configuring OpenBSD 4.4 (the latest version at the time of writing) to work with Apache 1.3.29, PHP 5.2.6, and MySQL 5.0.51a, creating an "oBAMP" stack, OpenBSD running the "AMP" portion of the better-known Linux LAMP stack. You can use similar configuration on other architectures as well, although they won't be identical to the procedures outlined here...

"After you have bought, borrowed, or downloaded a copy of OpenBSD OpenBSD 4.4, you are ready to configure OpenBSD as an Apache-powered PHP and MySQL web and database server. The configuration process of OpenBSD 4.4 is easier than for any prior release. However, for maximum control of your OpenBSD system, you will need to become familiar with the OpenBSD manual pages. If you find any conflicts between the information provided here and the information in the OpenBSD-provided manual pages, defer to the official manual pages. Posting questions to any OpenBSD forum can also be helpful, but search the manual pages for an answer before doing so."
