There may be a file in /etc called <something>release. Do an "ls /etc/*release*" and see what you get. That MAY tell you.

Aside from that, I'd strongly suggest you stop right where you are. Kali Linux is NOT designed for, nor supposed to be used for, installing LAMP and running a website. It is an advanced distro specifically designed for advanced users, for the sole purpose of network security testing. It even says all of this on their website...load a different distro and make your life easier.

Welcome to LQ. I see you marked this solved; what exactly did you decide/find, as a solution? (to help future searchers)

I decided to move on to ubuntu
Because it's much easier than kali
