How to install LAMP in Debian Linux. I need HELP!


Anyone have experience in this area? I'm familiar with WAMP and installing this software in Windows. I'm a Linux newbie, and could use a bit of help.

This is on my Ubuntu so it may not be exactly right but should be close:

With Debian, the easiest way to install anything is to open a console and type:
Code:
sudo apt-get install [Name of what you want to install]
I don't think there is a package for lamp (package is what Unix users call a collection of files that make up a program), but you should be able to install the components. E.G.
Code:
sudo apt-get install apache2

Thanks, for your help. I really appreciate it. The PC I'm using for this is an old Dell Inspiron 4600, Pentium 4 processor and 60 gigs of memory. I want to install Apache on a Western Digital 1TB external hard-drive. The first step is mounting the hard-drive. Do you know the command prompt for this? Though I think it's not actually called a "command prompt" in Unix...lol. I've found a helpful site here:

Welcome to the forums!

Slow down a minute.... most new users who get into to trouble, it's because they start following random tutorials and how to's blindly.

Step 1 is: have you installed Debian?

Once you have Debian installed, then

Step 2 is to read the following page. It is on the official Debian Wiki and it is the first google hit for Debian LAMP. Follow any tutorial other than this one at your own risk!!!

The above link is a good tutorial
BUT I would add

that for the first 6 to 12 Apache stack installs you manually install everything
build source and manually set up and install everything by hand

yes it is a bit of work
BUT ,it will pay off BIG TIME

you will LEARN how to set the software up and configure it
you will learn where everything IS installed
you will learn the ins and outs of the software
and
you will learn HOW to configure Apache as a safe and secure install

The a0pache stack it VERY easy to set up as a VERY INSECURE and very easily hacked server

it is a bit harder to have a secure and locked down ( and usable) install

then use "apt-get" or yum pr whatever to install the prebuilt packages
but that will only save you about 30 min. to 60 min. for an install

Thanks, guys. Yes, I've installed CrunchBang (Debian). It's the perfect OS for the 12 year old Dell I'm using for this project. It's way faster than the current Debian 6.0 that I tried after Ubuntu 12.04. I think I may do a clean reinstall, start from scratch and install Apache manually. Again, thanks for the input, guys. Peace

I assumed you were running a server install of Debian.

But since you are actually running CrunchBang, I'll change my advice:

The 'cb-welcome' postinstall script includes the option to install LAMP in one easy step.

I tried Ubuntu, then Debian, and finally settled on CrunchBang for the old Dell. I plugged in my 1TB hard-drive when doing the install, and this solved the mounting problem. I installed LAMP in the postinstall. Though in truth, at this point I only need Apache to host my personal site Rainbow Solutions USA. Thinking of doing a clean install and set Apache up manually. I have until June before my current hosting with FatCow expires, and will work on getting this done over the next 2-3 months. Thanks again.
