Edgard v.T.T. December 5, 2013 | # There are two important things to remember when installing LAMP in OpenSUSE 13.1. Although quite simple and trivial, these two things can cause issues with PHP if you forget about them. First of all, in OpenSUSE 13.1 display_erros is set to Off by default. If you are developing, it is important to turn it On at /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini. I know this is very basic and you most likely already know about it, if you have worked with LAMP before. The second detail is to alter the permissions of /srv/www/htdocs (# chmod 777 /srv/www/htdocs). I was used to Ubuntu where everything is automatic and I ended up forgetting to alter these permissions. As a result, PHP was not executing, returning a blank page with no source code, since in OpenSUSE this folder has no public access by default. Again, I know these are simple and trivial, but if, in a lapse, you forget about them, your PHP will not execute as expected.
