Install LAMP Stack one liner Ubuntu

Follow thru with this:

sudo apt-get install lamp-server^ phpmyadmin

Create link to phpmyadmin:

sudo ln -s /usr/share/phpmyadmin /var/www/phpmyadmin


Latest phpMyAdmin versions require mysqli extension and will no longer work with mysql one (note the extra "i" at the end of it's name).

sudo apt-get install php5-mysql

Will install package containing both old one and the new one, so afterwards all you need to do is to add


in your php.ini, restart apache and it should work.

Trouble Shooting

If you get this error:

apache2: Could not determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using for ServerName

$ sudo vim /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

then add a new line

ServerName localhost

in the Global Configuration section of the file (for example). Save your changes and close the file.


Change AllowOverride to All in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default
