Install LAMP on centOS
What is LAMP?
LAMP stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
Once installed you will be able to host your website on the sever you have installed LAMP on.
Step 1: Start by going to your terminal and type the below command.
sudo yum install httpd
You should see the download processing before it asks you if you want to install:
Type “y” and hit Enter.
Step 2: Start your Apache server by typing:
sudo service httpd start
Step 3: Installing MySQL
MySQL is an open source database management system often used to store user data on a web server.
With your terminal still open, type in the following command:
sudo yum install mysql-server
If you are running CentOS 7+, then you’ll need to install MySQL using the following commands:
yum install http://dev.mysql.com/get/mysql-community-release-el7-5.noarch.rpm
yum install mysql-community-server
Once MySQL is installed, start the service using:
sudo service mysqld start
Next you’ll need to set up a root password:
When asked for your current root password, leave the field blank and hit Enter. Type “y” and hit Enter again when it asks if you would like to set the root password.
Set the password and be sure to store the password somewhere safe.
Next you will be asked a series of questions. Read through them and determine what you want your answers to be.
Step 4: Installing PHP
PHP is a server-side scripting language designed for web development.
Type the command below to install PHP
sudo yum install php php-mysql
You have now installed LAMP
