install apache2 php and mysql in ubuntu

Now we can get started installing. This will take a few minutes, so grab a beer (or your favorite beverage,) and off we go. To install Apache, type or paste this into your terminal:
sudo apt-get install apache2
Once apache2 is done installing, you can go ahead and test it by using:
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 start
If you get a message that it’s already running, you’re good to go. Now, open up your browser and navigate to:
Again, to install PHP, type or paste this into your terminal:
sudo apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5
Once it’s finished installing, restart apache, using:
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

sudo gedit /var/www/phpinfo.php
Type or paste the following into the document, and save it. (remove the space before the ‘?php’)

Testing MySQLAfter that is finished, you can test MySQL by running this, where unixmen is your passwordmysql -uroot -punixmen
If it brings you to a MySQL prompt, you're done! You can type exit to get out of MySQL.
Now, if you want to install phpMyAdmin to have a front end for MySQL, you can use the following
sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-auth-mysql php5-mysql phpmyadminIt will ask you to choose a webserver to configure automatically, you can use the space bar to select Apache2. And after that's finished, restart one last time.sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
Finished!Now you have your own LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL PHP) server, with phpMyAdmin
Now, to pull up your phpMyAdmin panel, you can point your browser at...http://localhost/phpmyadmin
To log in and use PMA.
