Robert Bolton installed his Apache web server and MySQL with almost no problem at all, but when it came to PHP5, there were a few issues. His goal? To set up a simple, clean installation that would would immediately with the Zend Framework.
he way ZF is currently set up, it really only works from the root directory of a site (you can use modified controller to get around this), although they are going to change the controller structure so it works in sub-directories in future releases.
He notes the changes he made to the hosts file to set up two different domains as well as the chnages to the httpd.conf to set them up. This also includes the Rewrite rules to funnel requests back down to the main controller. He also includes a vi setting to work with tab characters the same way as "recommended" by the Zend Framework - 4 spaces wide.
