Are the Apache server, PHP, and MySQL installed by default when you install Ubuntu 13.10, or should you install them separately later?
You can use XAMPP for Apache, Mysql, PHP from this link: http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-linux.html
its very simple easy and fast.
Try it :)
No they don't come with the desktop version of Ubuntu 13.10 by default. You have to install those three by yourself. For "how to install" please go through this link .
The simplest way to install all three is to run the lamp-server task:
sudo apt-get install lamp-server^
The caret at the end means that this is running a task, not installing a package. There is no
lamp-server package, so if you leave off the caret, apt-get will return the error message,
Unable to locate package lamp-server.
The task will install Apache, MySQL, and PHP, and will also take you through the setup steps, such as creating a password for the MySQL root user.
