I'm trying to get LAMP up and running in VirtualBox for an assignment I have. I've installed Ubuntu and then Apache 2 and PHP 5. I'm using the instructions found here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP. When I enter the command shown for installing MySQL

install mysql-server libapache2-mod-auth-mysql php5-mysql

I get this error:

target 'php5-mysql' is not a directory.

Can anyone tell me what I need to do?

Thanks!

You have to use

sudo apt-get install mysql-server libapache2-mod-auth-mysql php5-mysql

instead of

install mysql-server libapache2-mod-auth-mysql php5-mysql

install is a different command that doesn't install software packages.
