    Question Installing LAMP to test a Wordpress site locally?

    Hey All,
    I need to install LAMP (which I've never used) and test a Wordpress site on it locally. Who knows how to do this or has done it before?

    Do I need to also install MySQL? I would imagine that I do.

    Please help. Thanks!

    The lamp stack includes MySQL.

    You should be able to run this:

    Code:
    sudo tasksel install lamp-server

    The M in LAMP means MySQL though sometimes MariaDB

    Or if you don't want to use tasksel you can just do...
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install lamp-server^

    Yeah it really is as simple as what has been said, once it is installed the web root will be in:
    Code:
    /var/www
    Also, not sure if you need help with createing the DB for wordpress or not but in case you do there is already a nice tutorial up on the wordpress site about how to do it. Helped me out a lot when I was learning SQL. (HERE).
