Ubuntu 14.04 has reached end-of-life. Please expand the "Using a Different System" section below to see updated versions.
LAMP includes Apache, MySQL, PHP, and Ubuntu. This guide was written for Ubuntu 14.04.
Apache is a free open source software for web servers.
To install Apache on Ubuntu, type these commands:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install apache2
Or just copy and paste this:
sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install apache2
Tahhda. Let's check if Apache was installed correctly. Run the command:
hostname -I and note down that IP. Open up your Internet Browser and direct your browser to that IP (Example: http://184.108.40.206 ). The page should load and say "It Works!".
MySQL is a database management system. Let's install MySQL on Ubuntu. Type these commands:
sudo apt-get install mysql-server php5-mysql
During the install, MySQL will request for you to setup a password.
Once that has been installed, run these commands:
Now write these commands:
sudo apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5 php5-mcrypt
