LAMP includes Apache, MySQL, PHP, and Ubuntu. This guide was written for Ubuntu 14.04.

Step One: Install Apache

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: ). The page should load and say "It Works!".

Step Two: Install MySQL

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:

sudo mysql_install_db

Then write:

sudo /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation

Step Three: Install PHP

Now write these commands:

sudo apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5 php5-mcrypt
