Why we should install LAMP?
If you’re developing websites, it’s nice to be able to test your code in the privacy of your own computer rather that out in the public internet. In order to do that, you’ll need to install a webserver on your development computer. LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, php) is one of the most common web hosting platforms, so it’s a perfect environment for you to build and test your website code. If you carefully follow these step by step instructions, you’ll have your own LAMP setup running in no time.
