Ever wondered if you could install the LAMP stack (on Linux Mint/Ubuntu) with one simple command? One would say let’s do:

apt-get install php5 mysql-server apache2  

However, there’s a shorter way of accomplishing that. Try the following:

apt-get install lamp-server^  

Or if you like things a bit more graphical, you could do:

tasksel install lamp-server  

If you’re installing LAMP on openSUSE then your command should be as follows:

zypper in -t pattern lamp_server  

Your LAMP server should be ready!
