Install LAMP in Ubuntu:
              The Ubuntu developers have made it easy to install the LAMP server packages with a single command. Simply open a terminal window and enter the following.

                                sudo apt-get install lamp-server^

               Please make sure to include the caret (^). The command will not work without it.

You will then be prompted to change the password for the root user on the MySQL database.Enter the password you want.Retype the password to confirm.
