I have deployed OpenStack using DevStack on single Ubuntu 12.04 machine running all services.

I actually have to develop a Private Cloud Document Management System

Now, I want to know that how do I develop a simple, simplest app, preferably in PHP on OpenStack cloud?

Can I develop it using PHP-OpenCloud? (Some told me that it is only for OpenStack deployed on RackSpace Cloud)?

Or can I develop using OpenStack Heat? Do I need to create a VM and lauch instance before I start with Heat?

What are the features that you want to in cloud document management system?

Openstack Heat is for orchestration service.

Openstack has Swift where you can store as objects. So for your use case of Document store, you can use Swift to store files as objects and access using url. This is similar to Amazon's S3. After enabling switft, create containers and store objects using dashboard or through API. Hope this answers.

Thanks!. Actually my system will be website providing cloud storage. I have (for testing so far) OpenStack installed on Ubuntu inside VMWare. And I have Apache2 and PHP5 installed on Ubuntu.

My project supervisor said that Apache and PHP5 should be installed/deployed on Cloud, not on Ubuntu which is actually hosting cloud Was he right? Do I need to Launch a VM in OpenStack and install PHP/Apache in that instance and deply my website there?

And for my storage to Swift, Will PHP-OpenCloud work for my local OpenStack deployed? Some say it works only for OpenStack deployed on RackSpace cloud!
