However, non have an answer for... Why does command
sudo apt-get install lamp-server^ installs some Perl libraries? As described on help.ubuntu.com.
The help link says that, command installs the following packages:
apache2 apache2-mpm-prefork apache2-utils apache2.2-common libapache2-mod-php5 libapr1 libaprutil1 libdbd-mysql-perl libdbi-perl libnet-daemon-perl libplrpc-perl libpq5 mysql-client-5.5 mysql-common mysql-server mysql-server-5.5 php5-common php5-mysql.
If I need only the Apache, MySQL and PHP, can I skip installing Perl? Or these packages are needed for my "PHP based" LAMP?
