Install Apache MySQL PHP phpmyadmin (LAMP) on Ubuntu 10.10

Installing Apache MySQL, PHP and phpmyadmin on Ubuntu10.10 Maverick Meerkat is far easier and less complicated than doing the same on Fedora 13, (my own experience).

you can install Apache2, php, MySQL all in one shot using the following command:
adsense –>

sudo apt-get install tasksel

This would install tasksel installer, now launch it and then choose to install lamp server by pressing space bar (you would be able to see a * in front of selected package) to select the software group to be installed. Launch tasksel by doing this

sudo tasksel

You would be asked for the MySQL root password, and then asked to repeat it.

Wait till the installation gets over, after which you can launch Firefox to check if apache and php installed correctly by following instruction in steps 2 and 3 below.

However, you would still need to install additional php libraries and phpmyadmin, as described in steps 4 and 5 below.

Step 1: You start by installing mysql

sudo apt-get install mysql-client mysql-server

Specify new password for the MySQl “root” user when prompted. Repeat it for a second time and you would have MySQL server and client installed.

Step 2: Next, install Apache2:

sudo apt-get install apache2

And you get apache2 installed as well. To double check, point your browser to http://localhost, and you should see the Apache2 placeholder page like this.

Step 3: To install support for PHP, do the usual

sudo apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5

To verify that everything installed correctly and php support is enabled, you need to restart apache by doing this

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Create a test php file called info.php, using a text editor of your choice (say gedit)

sudo gedit /var/www/info.php

and paste the following content and save the file


Now open the following page http://localhost/info.php and you should see something like this

Step 4: To make MySQL, php and apache talk among themselves, you would have to install php5-mysql, below I am listing some more useful packages that you might want to install

sudo apt-get install php5-mysql php5-curl php5-gd php5-idn php-pear php5-imagick php5-imap php5-mcrypt php5-memcache php5-ming php5-ps php5-pspell php5-recode php5-snmp php5-sqlite php5-tidy php5-xmlrpc php5-xsl php5-common

Now refresh the info.php page that you have open in your browser and you should be able to see the support for mysql if you search for it by doing Ctrl+f, but before that don’t forget to restart apache again (sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart)

Step 5: Finally install phpmyadmin

sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin

It would ask if you want to configure it automatically for apache or lightppd choose apache (by pressing “spacebar” to display a star as shown below and then use tab to navigate to Ok and press enter.

It would be automatically configured, however it would ask if you want a database installed and configured, choose yes and press enter.

On the next screen you would be asked to enter the MySQL root password, that you provided in first step

next it would ask you to enter a password to be used by phpmyadmin to register with the database (basically it would create a user called “phpmyadmin” the password is for that, most likely you won’t be needing this password ever. You can even choose to assign a random password for it.

Confirm that password on the next screen. Once you have made your choices the installation would finish and you should be able to access phpmyadmin by pointing your web browser to http://localhost/phpmyadmin/

You might need to restart apache again, for the above link to start working! (I didn’t have to restart apache, though.)
