install the Apache webserver on Alpine. The problem was because I
was not running Alpine from the hard drive of the Guest OS inside

Currently, I am adapting this install procedure for Alpine:
which is for CentOS Linux. As far as I can tell, these are all of
the dependencies needed for the install (I put x's next to the
ones that I was able to add with apk):

libxml2-dev x
tiff-dev x
php-gd x
php-mysql x
installkernel x

lame x
asterisk x
asterisk-dev x
