Hi Girvin,

Just a note: Why do you think you need httpd? Unless you are running a
web server (http://www...) on your computer, you should not need httpd
installed!  I am not running a web server, do not have httpd running,
and the computer runs fine without it.

Apparently because Ian wants to use phpmyadmin (which is called
"MyAdmin" ?? under PCLinuxOS) in order to administrate his mysql server
using a GUI (web-based, but GUI nonetheless). Hence the requirement for
a working Apache server and PHP setup.

There are other GUI tools available today that do just as good a job
without the requirement for a web server.

I agree.  I use mysql when I need it.
In fact, my Slackware distro does not have myadmin, but it does have something called mysqladmin, which does not look like it needs php.
Thanks for the explanation.
