Install LAMP Stack on Ubuntu 17.04 Server

Even Ubuntu 17.04 is not LTS version, some of you might wonder if this version can be used for server purposes. I personally not recommended to use Ubuntu 17.04 for a main server in a production machine because the official support to this release is only 9 month until January 2018 (Ubuntu Wiki). Regardless the support and life span of Ubuntu 17.04, I will show you how to use Ubuntu 17.04 as a LAMP Stack. You may want to take a look at my previous post on video tutorial to install Ubuntu 17.04.

The following step will install MySQL Server on Ubuntu 17.04

During installation, you will be asked to enter/provide root password for MySQL server. This password can be different with the system root password.
