Option 2: BitNami LAMPStack and Wordpress

What is BitNami LAMPStack?

BitNami LAMPStack is a free, easy to install package that bundles every piece of software (dependency) necessary to setup a LAMP (Apache, MySQL and PHP for Linux) environment up and running for development or production purposes. It is self-contained, it makes no modifications to your system and can be uninstalled easily. You can download the latest version of BitNami LAMPStack for Linux at http://bitnami.org/stack/lampstack. A Windows version and an OS X version are also available.

Regardless of which operating system you are running (Windows / Linux / Mac), the install process is the same.

 

Installing BitNami LAMPStack

Find the installer you just downloaded from the BitNami website (the filename will be similar to bitnami-lampstack-VERSION-linux-installer.run). Double click the icon to launch the installer.
