Cool Stack is a collection of optimized applications like Apache, PHP, MySQL and so on that work seamlessly out of the box. The new 1.2 version also includes lighttpd, and it is SMF integrated.
- CSKamp. This package is now comprised of 3 packages: CSKapache2, CSKphp5 and CSKmysql32 for a more flexible installation. The 3 components are pre-configured to work together. The MySQL included in this package is a 32-bit version with client-side support to work with PHP. For the database server, we recommend the CSKmysql package which is a 64-bit version, allowing the use of larger caches to deliver improved performance for large databases. However, on smaller systems you can use the 32-bit MySQL in this (CSKamp) package for the database server.
