Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP (LAMP) tasks automation scripts

If you are a "Lazy LAMP" developer who wants to run few script to get things done with no pain, then this repository is for you. This is a collection of few scripts (that I'll keep adding to) that automates few installation commands and tasks for your LAMP environment.

These script assumes few things up:

  1. You have root access to the server / machine you are running the scripts on (You will be asked for the root password when needed)
  2. You are running these scripts on a Debian Linux distribution (Eg. Ubuntu)


  1. Check a clone of this repo: git clone https://github.com/aymanrb/lazy-lamp.git
  2. Run echo "alias lazy-lamp=\"sudo bash $PWD/lazy-lamp/lazy-lamp.sh\"" | tee -a ~/.bashrc (To create an easy access alias of the main script, if you are using ZSH instead of bash you should replace the file with ~/.zshrc instead of ~/.bashrc)
  3. Run lazy-lamp or bash /path/to/lazy-lamp/lazy-lamp.sh and select your desired script from the index list to run.


Run lazy-lamp and select the script you wish to run from the list of available scripts.
