    [SOLVED] Installing LAMP server


    Hey all,

    I just installed Ubuntu server and the desktop. I went to the Synaptic Package Manager and installed the LAMP server. Noob question......where did it go? It is now grayed out with a check mark in the package manager like it is installed, but it's not in any menus anywhere. Do I need to do some coding for that to show up and use it?

    Thanks for the help.

    Its a service so it might not show up in menus. Try
    Code:
    locate lamp
    and if that doesnt work, cd into etc and see if its there. You can also try
    Code:
    ps -ef | grep lamp
    to see if its running. If its not try starting it with
    Code:
    service lamp start
    Its got a conf file somewhere too so you could search for all conf files.

    Thanks. I found everything in the /etc folder. LAMP itself is not a service, so the commands were coming up with errors. But, I found what I was looking for and you headed me in the right direction. Thanks again.
