Install Jaws on Ubuntu


Recommended Posts

Hey guys I tried to install Jaws onto my Ubuntu setup but whenever I try to run the install.php page it tries to open with nvu/bluefish to edit the page. It says PHP, MySQL, Apache and GD or ImageMagick are required. I have the latest of all installed and installed as many php/apache related files I could find in Synaptic. What am I doing wrong?

Synaptic installs the programs, but soemtimes it doesn't configure it fully.

Might want to check your apache and PHP configs

There's a couple of things that might be happening here. Depending on what version of Apache you're using and your environment setup, you might need to manually enable the PHP module. You can do this using the command

a2enmod php5

for PHP5 on Apache 2 and

a2enmod php4

for PHP4 on Apache 2. I don't know the equivalent command for Apache 1.x; sorry.

If the module is loaded and the page still isn't working, you might be missing the mime-type declarations in your Apache configuration file. Add

 AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps

to your virtual host configuration, or to the global configuration file if you want PHP enabled everywhere.
