Can I use FREESCO as a standalone LAMP server?

Yes, FREESCO can be configured as a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP/Perl) server. For obvious reasons this is for HD install FREESCO's only (Apache/MySQL/PHP/Perl won't fit on the floppy ;)).

1. use a "high end" FREESCO capable PC but install only a single NIC
2. configure FREESCO as ethernet-ethernet router
3. make sure to disable NAT/Firewall
4. install perl 5.6.1 add-on package
5. install Apache_1.3.27_dingetje package
6. install mySQL package

all packages are available for both FREESCO 027 and 03x as usual on FREESCOSoft

"high end" means a Pentium class PC with at least 32Mb (preferably more) RAM

If you plan to use a lot of perl or PHP scripting, then go for something in the 300 MHz range or better. Installing Turck MMCache is highly recommended.
