  1. Great a tutorial 🙂
    Do you know any way to install LAMP from CD or USB stick?
    If the machine doesn’t have internet connection, only local network access, how can I install it?

  2. Thank You Tha.Suresh,
    I will try this and write the results here, so anyone could find it

  3. works great with php, how about trouble shooting phpmyadmin.
    i am using linux mint 10 and i am getting a reply below in the browser:
    “Not Found

    The requested URL /phpMyadmin was not found on this server.
    Apache/2.2.16 (Ubuntu) Server at localhost Port 80”

  4. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
