Okay. So you want to set up your own development environment but you have no idea how to do it.
First thing you want to do is you need a server to install your LAMP Stack (Linux, Apache, Mysql and PHP.) I prefer Centos linux, you can get a free tier t.2 micro server from Amazon Web Services for 12 months if you just want to play around with it.
Okay so you have your server either in-house or at AWS.
I am assuming your running Centos or the amazon version of linux.
How to Update your server:
Please note the -y option installs the update without asking you if you’d like to install the update.
- Connnect to your server
- You will then issue this command:
[ec2-user ~]$ sudo yum update -y
- Your instance is now up to date.
You now have the latest version of everything that comes with the Linux bundle.
This is where I had some trouble, so stay with me.
How to install LAMP on your server:.
- To install LAMP you are going to issue this command:
sudo yum install -y httpd24 php56 mysql55-server php56-mysqlnd
- To start Apache:
sudo service httpd start
You should now be able to go to your public IP address and see the Apache test page.
You have a LAMP stack.
Note: You may have to go a HTTP rule in your security group.
Another Helpful Tip:
The test page is located here /var/www/html
To start your mysql server:
[ec2-user ~]$ sudo service mysqld start
Read carefully in the installation Y is to say Yes N is for No.
This is as far as I will take you.
