    installing apache on ubuntu 12.04

    I want to install wordpress 3.5 on my computer.
    I do not want the local host to be a website server for the internet.
    I want to use the server to develop wordpress websites locally on my computer.

    I found this probably outdated website

    I could not find a lamp in synaptic package manager.
    How can I install apache mysql and php using synaptic package manager?
    If you know how, is there any security settings I should make?

    Thanks.

    This should install everything your looking for if your installing into an existing OS
    sudo apt-get install php5 mysql-server apache2
    And to secure things I suggest using UFW or directly configure iptables for local only access

    Or the preferred method would be to download the server iso and install it from CDROM

    To err is human - and to blame it on a computer is even more so.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install lamp-server^
    Remember the hat at the end of the command.

    I think you'll find it's called a caret

    For more information read the relevant sections in the official server documentation...

    Re: installing apache on ubuntu 12.04

    Thank you for the answers.

    I used this instruction
    http://tuxtweaks.com/2012/04/install...cise-pangolin/
    Testing phpMyAdmin
    it says
    log in with the username root and the root password that you created earlier.
    Q what is the username root or where do I find it?

    If I want to remove lamp how do I do it?

    Thanks.

    When you installed mysql you were asked for a password for the mysql root user.

    thank you for answering. The psswd I knew, and I figured out,
    that user name was root.

    Do you know how to remove lamp?
