I’m a student trying to figure out how to get LAMP stack working on my laptop for Ubuntu 18.04. I need it for a project I’m working on at school and out of school.
I followed a few tutorials,
first https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-linux-apache-mysql-php-lamp-stack-ubuntu-18-04 second https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-the-apache-web-server-on-ubuntu-18-04 third https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-mysql-on-ubuntu-18-04 fourth https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-secure-phpmyadmin-on-ubuntu-18-04
to make a long story short, I set my domain as abc and this is me looking at it in terminal
Skynet:/var/www/abc$ ls index.html websitedirectory
index.html is from the second tutorial and displays: “Success! The your_domain virtual host is working!” The index.html works fine and displays when I go to url localhost in firefox. If I try to do localhost/websitedirectory I get a blank page and if I try to do www.abc/websitedirectory/login.php (I added login.php into /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/dir.conf to prioritize it) I also get a blank page. I’m not really sure what I’m doing wrong and how I can get my actual site to display using the LAMP stack. I was using the lampp package from apachefriends.org and I had my site working with that, but I’m trying to figure out how to use it with LAMP stack instead and to apply it to real world situations.
Would anyone be able to clarify this for me and explain what I’m doing wrong. Thank you in advance.
Big thank you to the tutorial authors: Justin Ellingwood, Kathleen Juell, and Mark Drake
