All the components of the LAMP server are available to install using the default system repository of Ubuntu. Hence, we can configure the environment without adding an extra repository. However, before moving forward, just run the system update command to ensure the system rebuilds the APT package index cache.
sudo apt update
Install Lamp server
We can install LAMP server components one by one on our Ubuntu system. However, it is a time-consuming process, hence to make it short here we are using a single command. That will not only install the LAMP server but also enable and start all the required services.
sudo apt install lamp-server^ php
The above command will select all the required packages to set up Apache, MySQL, and PHP on your system.
Uninstall the LAMP Server
Well, when it comes to uninstalling the LAMP server completely from your Ubuntu system, we can use the given command:
sudo apt autoremove --purge apache2* mysql-server* php*
