What is the GPL way - without or with little developing - to build a web site runnning on apache which has to feature: one million record database (MySQL; which may be editable), an advanced search on it with results (pins and/or images) to display on a google like map?

Example: http://livelovely.com/search

  • GPL way? :S. Use GPL software == GPL way – Nathan W Aug 3 '12 at 6:28

The front end would be OpenLayers. The database would ideally be PostGIS but you could manage with MySQL I guess. You might want Geoserver in there too. For background data use OpenStreetMap.

http://www.osgeo.org for all things open source geo.
