...couldn't be easier.

Open up Synaptic Package Manager (or Adept if KDE is your flavor...I'm not here to judge). Go to Edit->Mark Packages By Task and check LAMP Server.

Screen grabs attached.

That is TOTALLY sweet!  I've been following Perk's lead here and have always rolled my own, but this is way cooler!

Great score VS - Thanx!

Sometimes I like rolling my own. Only on BSD variants usually.

For my workstations which are mirrored copies of the dev environment, I prefer to just press the easy button.

FreeBSD Variants eh?   Idea...  What variants have you worked with and
how much different would this be from a mamp server?

Only thing i would add to the easy ubuntu LAMP install is to get
to terminal, login as sudo and issue the following:

Code:
apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl libmd5-perl

apt-get install phpmyadmin

apt-get install wget

wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin_1.370_all.deb

dpkg -i webmin_1.370_all.deb

apt-get -y --force-yes -f install proftpd

pick standalone from the blue screen when installing proftpd...

now you can login to https://your.ip:10000/  with root account and get a java based
lamp server administration tool that simplifies running LAMP even more.

No, I said BSD variants. FreeBSD is a BSD variant, as is OpenBSD Smiley

Gentoo is my BSD variant of choice for workstations (yay portage!) and FreeBSD is my variant of choice for servers. BSD is responsible for teaching us virtually everything we know of security. SSH was invented by the BSD org FFS!

I will grant you that the BSD security model is not always best for a non-security-minded person. Their model involves "Don't enable/install it unless you absolutely positively must have it", which can be annoying to some.

The difference - and it is miniscule nowadays (not so much 5-10 years ago - between a BSD variant like Gentoo and a MAMP server is that while some (like Perks) prefer to compile certain pieces of the stack from source, this is the default behaviour in Gentoo. It's also much easier. If you have Portage set to download and compile the source, you don't need to worry about dependencies or even compiling it yourself. You issue a simple command, it downloads the source and compiles it just the way you want. That's actually the way Gentoo is installed by default - no extracted pre-compiled cabs, it is downloaded as source and compiled from source. Like I said, 5 to 10 years ago this lent a significant performance increase. Nowadays it is very minimal, probably around a 2-5% performance increase under certain conditions. That game changes when you use a processor with a nonstandard instruction set though.

Very strange. That screenshot is from 8.04 Hardy.

I don't know, all my boxes (both 8.04 and 8.10) have that option there.

I have used this with 8.04 and ended up with the mark packages by task option, however after following the above directions still didn't have the 'which' command.  (got one riding a broom around my kitchen though.)

I ended up using these directions for 8.04:

Reminds me of the old saying.  If you can't lick 'em, bleed 'em slowly with rusty fish hooks until they're dead.  Then you can lick 'em.

Of course I have an iron deficiency so the saying has always resonated.

It is disappointing frankly. That many spam posts at the same time makes it REALLY obvious you are spamming. If he had spammed 1 time, into a topic I had no interest in, I would have just clicked "mark all as read" and it would have just slipped by. But NOOOOOO. dumb ass needed to get greedy.

That reminds me, my new adsense account needs to get set up...
