What is Lamp?

LAMP stack is a collection of 4 open source software which will help to create a web server in your Linux system. LAMP stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP. To make a website live in public using VPS  you need to install apache . In this post we are trying to explain entire step how to install in in Your Ubuntu or Debian Server.

We also created and automated shell script so that you can install entire LAMP by running shell file.


  1. Linux Server with static IP (Ubuntu/Debian) / ( Click here for RedHat/Centos Installation )
  2. Minimum 128 MB Ram
  3. 600 Mhz Processor



Connect your VPS Server using ssh

Automated Script Installation

# Coming soon

Steps 1 – Update Server

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Step 2 – Installing Apache

sudo apt-get install apache2

Step 3 – Installing Mysql

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

Once you have installed MySQL, we should activate it with this command:

sudo mysql_install_db

Finish up by running the MySQL set up script:

sudo /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation

The prompt will ask you for your current root password.

Type it in.

Enter current password for root (enter for none):

OK, successfully used password, moving on…

Then the prompt will ask you if you want to change the root password. Go ahead and choose N and move on to the next steps.

It’s easiest just to say Yes to all the options. At the end, MySQL will reload and implement the new changes.

By default, a MySQL installation has an anonymous user, allowing anyone
to log into MySQL without having to have a user account created for
them.  This is intended only for testing, and to make the installation
go a bit smoother.  You should remove them before moving into a
production environment.

Remove anonymous users? [Y/n] y                                            
 ... Success!

Normally, root should only be allowed to connect from 'localhost'.  This
ensures that someone cannot guess at the root password from the network.

Disallow root login remotely? [Y/n] y
... Success!

By default, MySQL comes with a database named 'test' that anyone can
access.  This is also intended only for testing, and should be removed
before moving into a production environment.

Remove test database and access to it? [Y/n] y
 - Dropping test database...
 ... Success!
 - Removing privileges on test database...
 ... Success!

Reloading the privilege tables will ensure that all changes made so far
will take effect immediately.

Reload privilege tables now? [Y/n] y
 ... Success!

Cleaning up...

Once you’re done with that you can finish up by installing PHP.

Step 4 – Installing PHP

sudo apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5 php5-mcrypt

Step 5 – Installing PhpMyAdmin

sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin apache2-utils
  • Select Apache2 for the server
  • Choose YES when asked about whether to Configure the database for phpmyadmin with dbconfig-common
  • Enter your MySQL password when prompted
  • Enter the password that you want to use to log into phpmyadmin

After the installation has completed, add phpmyadmin to the apache configuration.

sudo nano /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

Add the phpmyadmin config to the file.

Include /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf

Step 6 – Restarting Apache

sudo service apache2 restart
