I just installed Ubuntu 14.10 server. While installing I asked it to install LAMP. But how do I tell if it is working? I tried which is my server, from a web browser on my network. I get the message this website is unavailable.

So what do I type on my server to see if Lamp WAS installed and running? Then I want to see if MySQL was installed, then PHP and phpMyAdmin.


You did check to see if it was working and got your answer.

Log into the machine ssh <user>@ and execute:

sudo apt-get install lamp-server^

This is for the meta-package of a basic LAMP. Any package required, but not installed will be installed.

If all is successful , you can open your browser to and you will see the Apache2 Ubuntu Default Page

If you are not successful you will know where the fault lies.
