OK. I think I found the answer after visiting AlexT's thread Edison opkg package repo created again (reading it more carefully), and following the posts of user rubidium.This is what I think I understood:
* Yes, the LAMP setting is possible and since it is still Yocto Linux it should be compatible with Intel XDK.
* Steps to do:
- Configure Edison for AlexT's repo according to Edison Package Repo Configuration Instructions
- Install Apache and PHP with opkg install apache2 modphp
- Start Apache with systemctl start apache2
Unfortunately my knowledge of Linux is such limited that I am stuck here:
- Does systemctl make that Apache will start automatically when Edison powered on?
- How to install MariaDB and start the service automatically?
- I think I read that the Edison has already some webserver running on port 80. Is this true and can I change the port, so that the Apache will answer to a standard request?
- Anything else to keep in mind (e.g. to have enough space for DB)?
Sorry to ask so many questions, but I want to make sure that the Edison is exactly what I need before I go any buy one.
Unfortunately I am stuck and need help!
Everything went more or less smoothly until I tried to install the MariaDB package. After installing and starting Apache as mentioned above I ran:
opkg install mariadb-server
This ended in a FATAL ERROR as it ran our of space (I think on the root partition).
Please help me!
Here is the output I got:

Thanks a lot. Yes, this is what I already confirmed as df shows that the root fs has no space left:

Unfortunately I could not find instructions on the internet how to reallocate space from one of the other filesystems to the rootfs (at least not for my level of knowledge). But thanks a lot for the hint regarding this forum. I will search it this evening.
It seems that some time between then and now, the amount of room in the file systems has been adjusted and this is no longer a problem.

I followed the installation and start instructions for Apache2 that you listed, and followed the instructions from How do you disable the default Edison server? to dissable the default server so the Apache server comes up by default. Thanks for the info.
