Configure LAMP Server

In this tutorial we will show you how to Configure LAMP server.
Choose linux

To start installing LAMP server you need to install tasksel.Tasksel is a Debian/Ubuntu tool that installs multiple related packages as a co-ordinated “task” onto your system. To install tasksel type the following in a terminal.

Install lamp
                sudo apt-get install tasksel

WARNING: Use tasksel only to install tasks, never to remove any! According to it will remove each package in the list of that task (and possibly render your system unusable).

You need not install tasksel in server editions and some distributors too since they come with tasksel already installed, if your Linux has it already them the install command would not do anything else that update it if it is an out dated version.
