Install a LAMP stack on Fedora 31

A LAMP stack is a collection of open-source software that you can use as a platform to create websites
and web applications. The term LAMP is an acronym standing for Linux® operating system, the Apache®
HTTP Server, the MySQL® database system, and the PHP programming language.


You need a Linux-based server running Fedora 31

Install a LAMP stack

Perform the following steps to install a LAMP stack:

  1. To set up the repositories, including the Remi repositories, and download the latest version of PHP, run the following commands:

    sudo dnf -y install
    sudo dnf config-manager --set-enabled remi
    sudo dnf install dnf-plugins-core
    sudo yum install php73

  2. To download all the software required for LAMP, run the following command. When prompted, press Y to install the packages.

    sudo dnf install httpd mariadb mariadb-server php

  3. To verify that the PHP version is v7.3.x, run the following command:

    sudo php -v

  4. To start Apache, set it to start on boot, and open the firewall for web traffic, run the following commands:

    sudo systemctl start httpd
    sudo systemctl enable httpd
    sudo firewall-cmd --add-service=http --permanent
    sudo firewall-cmd --reload

  5. To start the MariaDB database and configure it to start on server boot, run the following commands:

    sudo systemctl start mariadb.service
    sudo systemctl enable mariadb.service

You should now be able to navigate to the IP address of your server in a browser and see the Apache test
page to confirm you’ve configured the server correctly. The LAMP stack is all set up and ready to act as
a base for our application after you install it. Because the applications you choose to use , especially
with PHP, often require additional modules, be prepared to install those modules as needed.
