8) yo... guys.. needs some advise on my design project... i'm planning to design a database system of books in our reading center in our school, and i am planning using PHP and MySQL (using a browser as the interface)... i got a little experince with MySQL and i'm just started reading about PHP... then later on i found out that doing it would also requires a web server like apache (which would also be my 1st time to try...haven't got any experience or lecture on it).... and also this is my first time trying to progam in linux... any advise on how dificult it could be (i got only a couple or months to finish it, say 2.5-3 months).. also my instructor told us on how we have to defend it.. first oral defense of my design then second he would have to put some modification of the program then we would be given some time to debug it.. if we didn't fixed the problem with that time we got low or even falling grades... thanks for the help... 8)

you need to read about LAMP first so...

yo... thanks for the links... but is it not too risky for a newbie to try all those things.... coz while i'm reading the pages, i can't comprehend or understand the other steps coz i'm just really new on using linux and making a database system specially using browser and linux, but i got a small experience in doing some projects with vb6.0 and mysql5.0.... thanks...

the most difficult part is setting up LAMP (Linux, Apache, PHP, MySQL) server.

second most difficult is learning PHP and SQL which is not difficult at all.

i got some knowledge in MySQL but using VB6.0.... and on one of the links said that setting LAMP would be easier if i install the LAMP server during system installtion form ubuntu 6.06 LTS... i'm just being discourage because of the strings that need to be configured before i completely make a server... thanks to all replies guys...

With Linux there is almost always someone who has written some kind of HOWTO. See these links (and search the forum)
This article says that the Edgy Server edition has LAMP integrated. I have Edgy Desktop so I can't confirm that.
