New to NexentaStor Community. I have been searching for some clues on the best practices for installing PHP. Clearly should use apt-get, but the nextenta repository doesnt appear to have PHP in it. Does anyone have any experience doing this? Are there any potential dangers? I have some reporting tools that shows last successful backup for users, and would love to deploy them on this box if I can....

you could add a normal repo, which includes php (u'll find a howto in debian/ubuntu wikis...). coul'd be crappy, because u change the apacheconfig with this.
i'm not quit sure, but i guess i tested installing php on a vm using nexentastor and i could not connect to the webgui after the install. i wasn't sure, if php was the problem because i played a lot with this vm, but u could get some troubles.
it probably would be the best, if u could try the install on a testing-system. (sould be clear...)

Good point. Humm. Plus there is the whole issue of likely needing to update apache too, as it would need PHP support rolled into it.
Seems like it just may not be worth doing. I'll probably just rewrite the scripts to use shell and run it through a crontab. Less invasive.
Thanks for the reply!!!
