Automated installation of LAMP stack on Ubuntu Server

In this tutorial, I’ll show you that how we can install the LAMP stack on Ubuntu Server interactively.

First create the script :

vi lamp.sh

1

Copy and Paste the following code into it (Modify the MySQL root Password,as per your requirement):

#!/bin/bash

#Instructions to use this script 
#
#chmod +x SCRIPTNAME.sh
#
#sudo ./SCRIPTNAME.sh

echo "###################################################################################"
echo "Please be Patient: Installation will start now.......and it will take some time :)"
echo "###################################################################################"

#Update the repositories

sudo apt-get update

#Apache, Php, MySQL and required packages installation

sudo apt-get -y install apache2 php5 libapache2-mod-php5 php5-mcrypt php5-curl php5-mysql php5-gd php5-cli php5-dev mysql-client
php5enmod mcrypt

#The following commands set the MySQL root password to MYPASSWORD123 when you install the mysql-server package.

sudo debconf-set-selections <<< 'mysql-server mysql-server/root_password password MYPASSWORD123'
sudo debconf-set-selections <<< 'mysql-server mysql-server/root_password_again password MYPASSWORD123'

sudo apt-get -y install mysql-server

#Restart all the installed services to verify that everything is installed properly

echo -e "n"

service apache2 restart && service mysql restart > /dev/null

echo -e "n"

if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
   echo "Please Check the Install Services, There is some $(tput bold)$(tput setaf 1)Problem$(tput sgr0)
else
   echo "Installed Services run $(tput bold)$(tput setaf 2)Sucessfully$(tput sgr0)"
fi

echo -e "n"
 Then set the execute permission for your shell script:
chmod +x lamp.sh
3
Now, execute the shell script as sudo user:
sudo ./lamp.sh

Hope this will help you!
