LAMP in one command

  11 years ago

Ever wondered if you could install the LAMP stack (on Linux Mint/Ubuntu) with one simple command?
One would say let's do:

$ sudo apt-get install php5 mysql-server apache2

However, there's a shorter way of accomplishing that. Try:

$ sudo apt-get install lamp-server^

Or if you like things a bit more graphical, you could do:

$ sudo tasksel install lamp-server

And your LAMP is ready!

@BhojpuriKa: You need to sudo apt-get install tasksel first.

I tried the last option first. It did not work. Said tasksel not found.

Then I went for second option and it worked!
