Smile LAMP & Ubuntu 6.06

I am running Ubuntu 6.06 LTS on my desktop. I would like to know whether it is possible to install LAMP on it, or do I have to install the Ubuntu Server Edition in order to have LAMP?

When can I find info on this?

I was able to find this guide, but it deals with the Ubuntu Server Edition.

Any help is appreciated.

The guide is valid for your regular desktop installation since they both use the same base package. So yes, you can have a complete LAMP server using any Ubuntu flavor.

I just read the guide and it assumes an installation of Ubuntu Server edition. The guide does not go into detail about the necessary packages to install LAMP.

The packages needed for a LAMP (in Edgy, but they should be equal/similar in Dapper) are:
libapache2-mod-php4 (or 5, depending on the version you want)
php4 (or 5)
php4-mysql or php5-mysqli
mysql-server-4.1 (or 5.0)
mysql-client-4.1 (or 5.0).
