Install Packages Separately

If you prefer not to install the bundled packages via Tasksel, you can instead install them separately:

sudo apt install apache2

Install the mysql-server package:

sudo apt install mysql-server

Install PHP, the PHP Extension and Application Repository, Apache support, and MySQL support:

sudo apt install php libapache2-mod-php php-mysql

Optionally, install additional cURL, JSON, and CGI support:

sudo apt install php-curl php-json php-cgi

Use the mysql_secure_installation tool to configure additional security options. This tool will ask if you want to set a new password for the MySQL root user, but you can skip that step:

sudo mysql_secure_installation
