  2. ricgomez says:

    $ sudo tasksel install lamp-server

    Sencillo pero suficiente, sólo faltaría phpMyAdmin

    Personally, I would use XAMPP (see as it is entirely self contained in /opt/lampp and if you do not want it any more you can just delete the dir /opt/lampp and it is gone … no spread out files and no dependency issues.
    I even use in corporate use

  4. Aaron says:

    Try also “sudo tasksel install lamp-server”.

    This is what the Ubuntu Server install CD uses. It should install and configure the stack automagically.

    Nice guide. I’ve been trying to get mysql to work under Jaunty for an hour or so, and it kept “failing” to install…

    Removed everything, followed this guide, and it worked. Thanks a lot!

  6. Mike says:

    There is a ‘/’ missing in ‘sudo etc/init.d/apache2 restart’, it should be ‘sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart’

    I absolutely new to Linux and rented a Ubuntu Jaunty Root-Server

    All the steps work fine with no error messages, until I´m pointing my browser to: http://serverip/phpmyadmin
    Of course I entered my server IP where it says serverip.

    My errormessage is this:

    Not Found

    The requested URL /phpmyadmin was not found on this server.
    Apache/2.2.11 (Ubuntu) PHP/5.2.6-3ubuntu4.2 with Suhosin-Patch Server at X.X.X.X Port 80

    Any Idea what to do?
