Is this ok [y/N]:

Start and enable Apache

systemctl enable httpd
systemctl start httpd

Enable http through firewalld

firewall-cmd --add-service=http --permanent
firewall-cmd --add-service=https --permanent
firewall-cmd --reload

Now open web browser and type the Fedora 26 IP address. You should see the following page.

install lamp server on fedora 26

At this point, our Apache web server is running and well configured.

Step 3. Install MariaDB

To install MariaDB, use the following command

dnf --enablerepo=remi,epel install mysql-server

The command will install MariaDB instead of MySQL Server. But that’s oke since MariaDB is a fork of MySQL Server. After install, start and enable MariaDB

systemctl start mariadb
systemctl enable mariadb

The next step is to secure the MariaDB. The default MariaDB password is none. Simply press Enter when asked.



[root@fedora ~]# mysql_secure_installation


In order to log into MariaDB to secure it, we'll need the current
password for the root user.  If you've just installed MariaDB, and
you haven't set the root password yet, the password will be blank,
so you should just press enter here.

Enter current password for root (enter for none): 
OK, successfully used password, moving on...

Setting the root password ensures that nobody can log into the MariaDB
root user without the proper authorisation.

You already have a root password set, so you can safely answer 'n'.

Change the root password? [Y/n] y
New password: 
Re-enter new password: 
Password updated successfully!
Reloading privilege tables..
 ... Success!

By default, a MariaDB installation has an anonymous user, allowing anyone
to log into MariaDB without having to have a user account created for
them.  This is intended only for testing, and to make the installation
go a bit smoother.  You should remove them before moving into a
production environment.

Remove anonymous users? [Y/n] 
... Success!

Normally, root should only be allowed to connect from 'localhost'.  This
ensures that someone cannot guess at the root password from the network.

Disallow root login remotely? [Y/n] n
 ... skipping.

By default, MariaDB comes with a database named 'test' that anyone can
access.  This is also intended only for testing, and should be removed
before moving into a production environment.

Remove test database and access to it? [Y/n] y
 - Dropping test database...
 ... Success!
 - Removing privileges on test database...
 ... Success!

Reloading the privilege tables will ensure that all changes made so far
will take effect immediately.

Reload privilege tables now? [Y/n] y
 ... Success!

Cleaning up...

All done!  If you've completed all of the above steps, your MariaDB
installation should now be secure.

Thanks for using MariaDB!

Step 4. Install PHP

Now install PHP with the following command

dnf --enablerepo=remi,epel install php php-mysql


root@fedora ~]# dnf --enablerepo=remi,epel install php php-mysql
