I'm looking to set up a simple LAMP server. I do know how do this manually. I am not looking for a guide as to how to setup a LAMP server. Is there a pre-built LAMP server image that already has PHP, MYSQL, Apache, etc., already installed? I'd like to skip the manual CLI install work.

    I know this will not answer your question but if you have access to an Ubuntu server platform you can just: sudo apt-get install lamp-server^. Otherwise I would say that install each LAMP component from the command line is not that hard. Really.

  • @Kenneth Thanks. Good thing to know. However for this specific use case, I need an image.

    Out of curiosity, could you not just install a base image of Rasbian, then manually install the LAMP server packages, and then make an image of that for later use?

  • @leonardo Yep, but I'd like to not have to mess around with configuring the settings for the LAMP server.

Came across this pre-made SD image for a lamp stack: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=37297 - planning on trying it myself soon!

  • I couldn't get the .zip file to work right. It won't expand correctly. Thoughts? (OS X 10.8.3)

  • i'm on a terrible internet connection, so not able to download the zip and try it myself. Just done a little dig around, and looks like this may be a more up-to-date version of the image: lampi.co.uk/downloads.html

if you're looking for an image to perform multiple installations later, that could be easily made:

  1. download raspbian
  2. copy image to SD
  3. boot your Pi
  4. install LAMP
  5. shutdown
  6. create an image from SD
  7. PROFIT!?
  • Yep, essentially my comment above. However, user wants a pre-made image.
