View Full Version : Installing LAMP form Ubuntu 12.04 Server Edition

January 23rd, 2013, 10:21 PM
I'm currently trying to do a LAMP install by way of using the Ubuntu 12.04 Server install disk. None of the computers have (or will have) an Internet connection, and I have had very little luck in tracking down all the dependencies to download the individual packages.

I have added the Ubuntu 12.04 Server CD in Software Sources.

The command: sudo apt-get -y install apache2 lists the packages that are going to be installed and tries to begin, but then I get this error:

Media change: please insert the disc labeled
'Ubuntu-Server 12.04.1 LTS _Precise Pengolin_ -Release i386 (201220817.3)'
in the drive '/media/cdrom/' and press enter

I checked the mount point of the CD and found that it was /media/Ubuntu-Server...

Explicitly mounting the CD to /media/cdrom/ did not help either because (I assume) apt-get merely dismounted it and printed the error again.

Is there any way to force apt-get to look in a different filepath to find the CD?

I managed to get around my issue by copying all the packages into a local directory and creating a local repository following these instructions: How To Build Local APT Repositories (http://odzangba.wordpress.com/2006/10/13/how-to-build-local-apt-repositories/)

While it wasn't really the solution I wanted, it achieves a close-enough result.

As such I'm marking this thread SOLVED
