Yes, I know it will support it. It is a 64-bit Fedora system. The problem is that I'm still fairly new to Linux and I need help on how to execute the database system. Think you can help me?

well the thing about learning linux is that if i show you step by step how to do what you need, then! whats the meaning about learning linux, dont get me wrong i want to help you,but i will be helping you more if let you do it by your self. read the installation notes read the installation notes

first of all you got to have the packages that you need to the services can run.

apache server

install mysql, apache with mod_php, php with mysql module. ( should default )

copy the files to the /var/www/html/ folder
at console:

create dbname
( same as creating in windows version of mysql )

or, take a db dump with inserts, install phpmyadmin and run the dump as an sql query with it.
that will create the db exactly as you have it.
the php scripts should have the connection to mysql and the db already coded in them. [ if you built them right ]

make sure mysql and apache start at boot.

all done, it should be serving the pages from the script if you have installed everything correctly.
