Installing Apache on Ubuntu 9.10

Tonight I decided that I’d like to be able to do some web development from home. The basic suite is called LAMP, which stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP; the standard web developers toolkit. After a little bit of googling, I found this great guide from Tux Tweaks that walked me through the entire process. Once installed, my system hosted any files in the /var/www/ directory, and had MySQL and phpMyAdmin installed for database access.

Enjoy!




On my Laptop, I am running Linux Mint 12.
On my home media server, I am running Ubuntu 12.04

    Apache is so slow though.

    Think you would be a lot happier Nginx, PHP-fpm, & xcache.

    Sell it to me then. If all I’m doing is local development, speed really isn’t my primary concern, and where the entire Lamp stack installs with one package, that link contains a page full of packages to install and config files to edit. So why would I be happier with Nginx?
