Install Apache

Apache 2 is available as an Ubuntu package, therefore we can install it like this:

# sudo apt-get install apache2

Then restart Apache:

For Ubuntu 14.04
# sudo service apache2 restart
For Ubuntu 15.04
# sudo systemctl restart apache2

To make sure everything installed correctly we will now test Apache to ensure it is working properly or not.

http://localhost
Or
http://Server-IP

Install PHP

We can install PHP and the Apache PHP module as follows:

# sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
# sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php5
# sudo apt-get update
# sudo apt-get install -y php5

Now verify installed PHP5 version using following command.

# php -v

At long last introduce mysql-server bundles for MySQL database. Additionally introduce php5-mysql bundle to use MySQL support using php. Use following command to install it.

# sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ondrej/mysql-5.5
# sudo apt-get update
# sudo apt-get install mysql-server php5-mysql

After installing MySQL execute following command for initial settings of MySQL server.
