How to install LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) on Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 16.04

LAMP stack is a combination of various open source software including Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP and is used quite extensively today. This article will guide you step by step to install LAMP on the Ubuntu server. If you want to install on CentOS you can visit this link.

Lamp on Ubutnu

Currently, Amazon is free Ubuntu VPS 1 year with 1gb Ram package, 10GB SSD. You can register for free here.

Install Lamp on Ubuntu

Install Apache

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install apache2

If asked, press y, then Enter.

If ok then when accessing the IP server it will say “It works!”

Install MySQL

sudo apt-get install mysql-server libapache2-mod-auth-mysql php5-mysql

During installation, you will need to enter the MySQL root password.

Active MySQL

sudo mysql_install_db

Run the MySQL installation script

sudo /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation

Enter root password

Enter current password for root (enter for none): 
OK, successfully used password, moving on...

You will then be asked if you want to change the root password, which you choose Y / N.

The last part hit y

By default, a MySQL installation has an anonymous user, allowing anyone
to log into MySQL without having to have a user account created for
them.  This is intended only for testing, and to make the installation
go a bit smoother.  You should remove them before moving into a
production environment.

Remove anonymous users? [Y/n] y                                            
 ... Success!

Normally, root should only be allowed to connect from 'localhost'.  This
ensures that someone cannot guess at the root password from the network.

Disallow root login remotely? [Y/n] y
... Success!

By default, MySQL comes with a database named 'test' that anyone can
access.  This is also intended only for testing, and should be removed
before moving into a production environment.

Remove test database and access to it? [Y/n] y
 - Dropping test database...
 ... Success!
 - Removing privileges on test database...
 ... Success!

Reloading the privilege tables will ensure that all changes made so far
will take effect immediately.

Reload privilege tables now? [Y / n] and
 ... Success!

Cleaning up...

Install PHP

Run the following command

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

Add PHP to the index file list

          DirectoryIndex index.php index.html index.cgi index.php index.xhtml index.htm
