So, to begin with, how do you download LAMP?
I saw it sitting in the Ubuntu Server Edition, but I didn't click on
it because I didn't know what it was. So, 'apt-get install LAMP' is
the next step, but this doesn't do it.
It's a good suggestion, but some detailed guidance is really
appreciated, by noobs and not-so-noobs alike. And, it gives you a
chance to show how much you have learned since your noob days.
