Need testers for Hiwatha/PHP5/Percona Server install script

Hi all,

I don't have free VPS in my pocket to run tests and before making this script with Debian x64 support, i need testers who can install version x32 and run this script from step 1 to step 5. I made this script to save my working time, but i guess other people can use it as well.

Before I add more features, i need you boys and girls. I know that most people even don't know what Percona is (not all of you for sure), but if you check this link you will see why me and my co-workers are moving all sites and projects to Percona. And for others, you can chek more about Hiawatha on this link. What this script can do for you (photo can say more then hundreds of words):

HOW TO

  1. Copy this code to let's say hiawatha.sh

  2. Run in terminal chmod +x hiawatha.sh

  3. Then run in terminal ./hiawatha.sh

What i can add in the future:

  1. Debian x64 support or even CentOS is possible

  2. Setting php-fpm

  3. Setting vhosts

  4. Enable or disable Sqli and xss protection (and few other security things)

Etc ...coding can be funny :)

    Great man, PM send. Thanks.

    I didn't say before but i think that even 128/256MB VPS can run this without problem (need some extra mysql and server settings i guess).

    I suggest to create a repo on GitHub :), I want to follow the development. Good luck!

    Hi again, i just finished editing Debian 64 support. I wait for free VPS from Virtovo and after doing few tests on 32/64 systems i will share with you. If i get around with making Hiawatha package for CentOS i think that next step will be support for CentOS. Maybe 2nd script or i will keep all in same place.

    That is all for now :)
