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.
Now it will ask where you want to install the program. Select the location on your machine and click "Forward" when you are done.
Type your MySQL root password. This will be the password for the "root" user for the database.
The installer is now ready to begin the installation process. Click "Forward".
Wait a minute while the installer copies the files and configures your LAMPStack installation.
BitNami LAMPStack is now set up and ready to be used. Click "Finish" to launch the application.
