FGS Linux Installer

The FGS Linux Installer is a self-extracting file that will install MapServer with PHP/MapScript and all of their dependencies on your Linux system. It provides a stand-alone environment with all the required software (incl. Apache and PHP) to run PHP/MapScript webmapping applications. The bundled version of Apache can be configured to run on any port so it will not interfere with previous installations of Apache or other web servers on your system.

This package was initially based on the ideas of the Free Open Source Software (FOSS) GIS Suite (FGS), but has taken a slightly different tangent. We hope to contribute our enhancements back to this project at some point.
