Install and configure a local Linux server optimized for web application development with the LAMP (Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP) software stack. Author Jon Peck describes the components and how they work together, shows you how to install and configure a virtualized Linux server, and details how to configure the additional stack elements: Apache, MySQL, and PHP.
The course also explores topics such as working from the Linux command line, installing several major PHP development frameworks and content management systems, and troubleshooting common installation and configuration issues. The demonstrations are performed with the Ubuntu distribution of Linux, but are also applicable to other Linux distributions.
Welcome to Up and Running with Linux for PHP Developers. I am Jon Peck, a Zend-certified PHP engineer with more than a decade of systems administration experience. In this course, I'll show you how to configure your Mac or Windows workstation to be your own no-cost private web development server. In the end, you'll have an optimized virtual server running like any other program in your existing operating system. The configuration you'll use is known as a LAMP stack, and it's an extremely popular and common collection of web industry software. The end result will be similar to a hosted virtual private server, or a VPS, except it will be much faster, cheaper, and accessible only from your workstation.
