LAMP with Ubuntu

April 21st, 2011 1 comment

I have a new install of Ubuntu 11.04 beta installed on a machine, and I wanted to use it to do some web development, so I needed to install Apache2 with PHP5 and MySQL. All I needed to do was run a simple command.

sudo apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client apache2 php5 libapache2-mod-php5

You’ll then need to restart apache to get php working.

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

You may view you phpinfo by editing a file in /var/www/

sudo gedit /var/www/info.php

add the following to the info.php.

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

Now visit http://localhost/info.php to view your php info. You may also want to add additional things to php5. You may search the repository using

sudo aptitude search php5

Then once you found what other things you’d like to have installed you may do so by entering something like

sudo aptitude install php5-mysql php5-curl php5-gd php5-idn php-pear php5-imagick php5-imap php5-mcrypt php5-memcache php5-mhash php5-ming php5-ps php5-pspell php5-recode php5-snmp php5-sqlite php5-tidy php5-xmlrpc php5-xsl php5-json

Usually I need to have mod_rewrite enabled for my applications to work.

sudo a2enmod rewrite

Finally you may want to install phpmyadmin for working with your MySQL databases

sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin
