Installing LAMP On Ubuntu For Newbies

In this guide I will show you how to install a LAMP system. LAMP stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP. The guide is intended to help those who have very little knowlegde of using Linux.

 

Install Apache

To start off we will install Apache.

1. Open up the Terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal).

2. Copy/Paste the following line of code into Terminal and then press enter:

sudo apt-get install apache2

3. The Terminal will then ask you for you're password, type it and then press enter.

 

Testing Apache

To make sure everything installed correctly we will now test Apache to ensure it is working properly.

1. Open up any web browser and then enter the following into the web address:

http://localhost/

You should see a folder entitled apache2-default/. Open it and you will see a message saying "It works!" , congrats to you!

 

Install PHP

In this part we will install PHP 5.

Step 1. Again open up the Terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal).

Step 2. Copy/Paste the following line into Terminal and press enter:

sudo apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5

Step 3. In order for PHP to work and be compatible with Apache we must restart it. Type the following code in Terminal to do this:

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

 

Test PHP

To ensure there are no issues with PHP let's give it a quick test run.

Step 1. In the terminal copy/paste the following line:

sudo gedit /var/www/testphp.php

This will open up a file called phptest.php.

Step 2. Copy/Paste this line into the phptest file:

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

Step 3. Save and close the file.

Step 4. Now open you're web browser and type the following into the web address:

http://localhost/testphp.php

The page should look like this:

Test PHP Page

Congrats you have now installed both Apache and PHP!

 

Install MySQL

To finish this guide up we will install MySQL. (Note - Out of Apache and PHP, MySQL is the most difficult to set up. I will provide some great resources for anyone having trouble at the end of this guide.)

Step 1. Once again open up the amazing Terminal and then copy/paste this line:

sudo apt-get install mysql-server

Step 2 (optional). In order for other computers on your network to view the server you have created, you must first edit the "Bind Address". Begin by opening up Terminal to edit the my.cnf file.

gksudo gedit /etc/mysql/my.cnf

Change the line

bind-address = 127.0.0.1

And change the 127.0.0.1 to your IP address.

Step 3. This is where things may start to get tricky. Begin by typing the following into Terminal:

mysql -u root

Following that copy/paste this line:

mysql> SET PASSWORD FOR 'root'@'localhost' = PASSWORD('yourpassword');

(Make sure to change yourpassword to a password of your choice.)

Step 4. We are now going to install a program called phpMyAdmin which is an easy tool to edit your databases. Copy/paste the following line into Terminal:

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

After that is installed our next task is to get PHP to work with MySQL. To do this we will need to open a file entitled php.ini. To open it type the following:

gksudo gedit /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini

Now we are going to have to uncomment the following line by taking out the semicolon (;).

Change this line:

;extension=mysql.so

To look like this:

extension=mysql.so

Now just restart Apache and you are all set!

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

 

The End

Quick note to anyone who encountered problems with setting up the MySQL password, please refer to this page: MysqlPasswordReset

I applaud everyone who has taken the time to read this guide. This guide is also my first ever so I would love to hear back from the public on what you guys think! Just don't be too harsh. ;)

Great post... I found it very easy to follow. 
Submitted by Henrik (not registered) on Thu, 2014-08-14 12:12.

I tried the tutorial and probably due to updated versions I have these corrections

 

The mysql apt-get will prompt me for a root password, thus you do not need that step.

Also, the "mysql -u root" cannot log you in, you must replace it with "mysql -u root -p" and then enter your pwd upon request.

I just needed to put up a LAMP and this guide was the first I found.
Simple and good instructions! two problems I encountered, the () around the password did not work for resetting the sql database, and the reset for apache2 in the last string did not work. other than that, worked really good! Thank you!

Can you please add below steps for phpmyadmin, as I had to do these in order to run phpmyadmin from browser

sudo gedit /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

add this line somewhere

Include /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf

and finally restart apache.

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Alterantive to "Test PHP" Steps 1 and 2: 
 
#create test PHP page
sudo rm /var/www/testphp.php
sudo touch  /var/www/testphp.php
echo "<?php phpinfo(); ?>" | sudo tee /var/www/testphp.php
cat /var/www/testphp.php #Make sure <?php phpinfo(); ?> appears on the output, 2 times

How would I be able to test and see if everything is working properly if I am using Ubuntu Server?  I know that I can't open a web browser so how could I test this and see if everything is working properly?
Submitted by James (not registered) on Mon, 2014-02-03 17:39.

For step 3 of the mysql setup: Instead of the command 'mysql -u root' it should be 'mysql -u root -p'It will ask for the password, so just put in your password.  If you dont' know it, try using your linux user account password or..sudo -i passwdand punch in your new UNIX password This is my first time installing LAMP on my ubuntu 12.04 (desktop) system so I couldn't think of anything that would alter step 3. Hope this helps everyone.

Good Day,

 I have just installed XAMPP as per your very clear instruction on UBUNTU 12.04 

(The clearest instructions I have found so far) 

After installing PHP  and doing the RESTART I got the message; ... Waiting apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, assuming 127.0.1.1 as server name.

 I carried on and installed MySql  and phpmyadmin as per the instructions, much the same

THEN when I wanted to test localhost/phpmyadmin I got :

NOT FOUND

The required URL /phpmyadmin was not found on the server

 ---------------------------------

 APACHE/2.2.22(Ubuntu) Server at localhost Port 80

 

Please what must I do to get things working so that I can use my database

 Are there settings I need to make to MySql?

and Where do I create a directory where I can place my PHP and HTML code so I can test via localhost.

 Many thanks

 Sib

I believe you made a typo. 127.0.0.1 is local host.
Submitted by Anonymous (not registered) on Tue, 2014-04-01 23:57.
The localhost address on 127.n.n.n uses the netmask 255.0.0.0 so all addresses under 127 work. I often use 127.0.13.37 just for fun, works fine.

Beautiful cookbook style directions.   I hate pages that just say "install apache" with no information on how to do.  Great job.

 You say uncomment the line:  

    ;extension=mysql.so

 But when I went to edit the file, the line said

       ;extension=msql.so

 So I couldn't find "mysql.so"   I can't imagine why my installation had "msql.so" but I just uncommented it and changed it to "mysql.so"

 

Submitted by Zain (not registered) on Mon, 2014-01-27 14:52.
Yea, It says the same here too. Instead of mysql.so, I have msql.so. So, I changed it to mysql.so, saved and exited.

Totally a stupid question. When you say "add your IP address" in the MySQL installation section, do you mean my local or public IP?

 I got this to and resolved it by adding my local hostname to /etc/hosts.   My hostname is qbuild1.somewhere.com and my ip address is 192.168.5.67, so I added this line:

 192.168.5.67  qbuild1.somewhere.com qbuild1

I don't know about you guys but I prefer to install LAMP in a single click after reading about other methods.

 Don't know if you are allowed to link to other guides here or not but this one seemed to help as it had alot of screenshots, http://draalin.com/installing-lamp-on-ubuntu/

They had two different installation methods there too which was nice.

Try adding -p at the end of it so it'll look like "mysql -u root -p", it will ask   you for a password hopefully you remember it.

I just have it done on Linux Mint Debian Testing,it also worked perfectly well

after adding the "cp" line suggested by Mauricio on 2012.10.08.

One difference was that "extension=mysql" was present in the .conf file as  "extension=msql" .

Only details changed, as the presence of menus to edit the mysql password or to choose between apache and another server. Maybe because it seems this tuto was writen in 2007 and then these menus didn't exist yet. 

Very useful, thanks a lot!

In order to phpmyadmin works, you need to copy it to www:

sudo cp -R /usr/share/phpmyadmin /var/www

so, you can use it typing: http://localhost/phpmyadmin at your prefered browser.

Its really easy to install LAMP with ONE single command in ubuntu:

The steps you put here worked flawlessly, except that the file in your instructions "mysql.so" is "msql.so" in php.ini .  Perhaps it changed recently.

That was real crisp and straight forward way of doing it. Everything worked wonderfully smooth. The only glitch I faced was that http://localhost/phpmydmin didn't open the phpmydmin interface. A search at the ubuntu forums provided the solution for that too. In case anyone else needs.

thanks for your guide - I could installed everything alright

I think it would be even more helpfull if you explain how to reach phpmyadmin

 I used it before and after some thinking got to the configuration to be able to use it - I mean, 

 coping the content of /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf to /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

You could also say you get to phpmyadmin, not as an application but through the browser - I tried finding phpmyadmin application icon to run it! ;-(

This error message means that you already set up a password for MySQL.

When you install MySQL in Ubuntu, it asks you to enter a password.(MySQL in the terminal window)   If you entered a MySQL password at install, then you need to type this to log into MySQL:

mysql -u root -p

It will then ask you for the current MySQL password for the user "root"

If you entered a MySQL password at time of install, you can skip the step in this tutorial where it tells you to create a password.

I am a complete novice, so any answer please in easy speak just like the great instructions. I was able to follow easily but have this

 could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.1.1 for server name.

 

I have change the bind address to the ip addy i found on the network settings for this computer, what have I done wrong??

Thanks in advance

you have made nothing wrong...this say that there is no dns server in your host.

You have no http://example.com adress..

 That s not a problem, because you access to your site via http://localhost

Thanks for making a guide that is easy to understand and doesn't have unnecessary information riddled throughout!  That is so hard to find.  Keep up the good work!

In the past running windows and apache after installing phpmyadmin all i did was go to http://localhost/phpmyadmin, not this doesnt work in this case and am wondering how I can access phpmyadmin to make changes.

 

I am running ubuntu 11.10 if that is of any help.

 

Thanks Gavin,
