The LAMP stack is a very popular setup for a web server, it is relatively easy to create, leveraging open source software. Python or Perl may be used to replace PHP depending on specific requirements; additionally the AMP stack can be installed on alternative operating systems.
Setting up a new LAMP stack recently i decided it was time to take notes. For this particular build i’m using Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The full document has a repository on GitHub.
The document has 6 sections:
- Set up root access
- Secure Shell access
- Installing Apache, MySQL and PHP
- Permissions for site deployment
- Create a site domain
- Set up complete
The document should contain enough information to take you from an initial Red Hat Enterprise Linux install to an operating web server.
