For installing each package individually follow the following steps:

For connecting Apache2 and PHP5 we also install libraries in above command. After this restart your Apache2 services by following command.

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart


You can also install User interface of MySQL by executing following command to your terminal.

sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin

First we need to install a ubuntu’s tasksel tool which is used for installing multiple related packages as a co-ordinate "task" onto your system. For installing tasksel execute following command to you terminal.

sudo apt-get install tasksel
