best practice for a LAMP environment

I'm fairly new to the unraid community, I built my first unraid machine and purchased a license just about two weeks ago. Since then I'm wondering what's the best practice to set up a LAMP enviroment with Unraid.


My first guess was to set up an Ubuntu VM and install apache, php and mysql. This worked well but I'm struggeling to find a good way to set up the webserver root (htdocs-directory). What I would like to to is to use a Unraid share inside the VM so I don't have to set up and manage another samba configuration inside the VM. First I tried to set up a mount tag and mount a 9p file system inside the VM. By raising the msize in the fstab mount I'm getting a reasonable performance (it was quite bad with the default msize). But I noticed that Apache doesn't update a file until I read the file inside the VM over the console (e.g. with the midnight commander editor). Until that Apache always seems to get a cached version of the file. I found two apache settings:


EnableSendfile Off

EnableMMAP Off


After adding this into apache.conf I need to reload twice to get the latest version of a file. So still not perfect.


I tried to mount the htdocs-directory over smb but I just got very weird results (Apache offering random files for download instead of serving them, files appearing and dissapearing randomly for Apache etc.).


I finally set up another samba service inside the VM, but I don't like to manage two different samba configurations, creating another backup etc.


What's your solution for your LAMP environment?
