Hello friends. In this post, you will learn how to install the LAMP stack on Debian 11 The LAMP stack is a set of applications that allow us to deploy a web server efficiently and quickly.
LAMP stands for Linux, Apache web server, MariaDB, and PHP. Together they can make a computer a functional web server that can run many websites and complex web applications such as WordPress.
So it is a good idea to know how to install this software stack that will serve as a base to install many other applications.
So, let’s get started.
To start our post, we need to start with a clean install of Debian 11 which is quite easy to install. It is also recommended that you have it updated with these commands.
These commands are executed as the root user. But you can also enable sudo on Debian 11. So if you have it enabled just prefix the
sudo command with the rest.
With the system upgrade, we can continue the post.
Apache is an open-source web server that is very popular around the world. On the other hand, PHP is a web programming language that, while not the only one, is one of the most popular and used by all kinds of developers.
The installation of both tools is easy thanks to the fact that they are included in the official Debian 11 repositories. This process is detailed in our post
There you can find all the necessary information on how to install both tools.
The next step is to install and properly configure MariaDB which will serve as our database manager. MariaDB has many important features but the support that many web applications give to it is one of the main ones.
For example, applications such as WordPress, GLPI, and others support MariaDB, so installing it is vital.
For that, I invite you to read our post
There you can not only install it but also get it ready for us to start using it.
