LAMP is the combination of Linux, the Operating System, Apache, and the most robust Web Server, MySQL, the tiny but powerful database and a scripting Language in the form of PHP, Python or Perl. Installing LAMP is easily done by using the install command in the Linux console after providing the admin password for MySQL. After installation, the local host has to be opened in the browser and it will show accordingly. The association between Apache & PHP is essential. The next step is testing PHP in the same browser and it should pass the test. This is applicable for all variants of Linux like Redhat, Mandrake, Ubuntu, etc.
