Ubuntu is a great operating system if you really know how to work with it, for using it effectively you need to a linux lover first. Some people love and some don’t as it’s all about the individual choice but if you ask me about it I will always suggest you to stick with this operating system, specially when you belongs to IT background and also a developer or programmer.

Discussions apart, let me come to the main topic which is installing LAMP on UBUNTU, somewhere it is easy and some where it is the most hectic process also if you get stuck somewhere in the installation procedure. Although it’s a very simple process if each and every thing is followed as it should be.

So here I am going to show you some quick steps to install LAMP on UBUNTU and also the configuration changes of the LAMP which are needed to be done at the very initial time of LAMP configuration.

If we see the abbreviation of LAMP, it is made up of Linux, Apache, MySql and PHP. So we are going to install all these thing individually through some commands. What you have to do is just follow the steps one by one by triggering the command prompt.
