I have a similar problem as one of my next steps to getting a package
I'd like to enable apache2 and PHP and postgres. all in one script,
i know the Moodle group can do it all from PHP , i'd like to fork that
part of their code as a default PHP installation routine , would make a
great template in the buildservice! I just googled "install.php" and got
a few hits.
we should share a script.
