Noobuntu!!

I’ve had to reinstall Ubuntu Linux (Hardy Heron) on my rusty ThinkPad X60s. I did have great pretensions to create sweet music using Ubuntu Studio but life at The Ministry intervened, and now I need to set up a LAMP server so that I can work remotely and on the long train journey to and from The Village.

I’ve had to reinstall Ubuntu Linux (Hardy Heron) on my rusty ThinkPad X60s. I did have great pretensions to create sweet music using Ubuntu Studio but life at The Ministry intervened, and now I need to set up a LAMP server so that I can work remotely and on the long train journey to and from The Village.

After intalling the standard desktop version, I realised I didn’t have Apache, MySQL or PHP. And none of them configured. Oops.

All the tutorials I was reading were saying to install the server edition of Ubuntu. Double oops.

Luckily, I read in a comment that you can just use the command:

sudo tasksel install lamp-server

tasksel “groups some packages by tasks and offers the user an easy way to install the packages”

And even cooler, in a geekness sortofway, you can view all the available groups by simply typing:

sudo tasksel

Hmmmmm
