Bash Lamp Installer

LAMP installer setting up Apache, PHP, MySQL, Holland and attempts to set some sane defaults


There are many LAMP installation scripts floating around the internet. This is simply just another one to add to the mix. It is customized to fit the majority of the use cases I run into, and should be ready for use right out of the box.

Supported OS's

Currently this LAMP installer supports

  • CentOS 6 / Red Hat 6
  • CentOS 7 / Red Hat 7
  • CentOS 8 / Red Hat 8 (BETA - Not for production use)
  • Ubuntu 16.04
  • Ubuntu 18.04
  • Ubuntu 20.04 (BETA - Not for production use)

Package Versions Installed

It is important to note that for the CentOS and Red Hat operating systems, the installer makes use of the IUS repository in order to get the updated versions of PHP and MySQL.

The specific packages and their associated versions are shown in the table below for each operating system. The packages that deviate from the distro's default packages are denoted with IUS accordingly:

CentOS 6 / RHEL 6 CentOS 7 / RHEL 7 Ubuntu 16.04 Ubuntu 18.04
Apache 2.2 Apache 2.4 Apache 2.4 Apache 2.4
PHP 5.3.3 PHP 7.3 (IUS) PHP 7.0 PHP 7.2
MySQL 5.6 (IUS) MariaDB 5.5 MySQL 5.7 MySQL 5.7

Additional Software Installed

The following additional software packages are installed:

Package Purpose
Holland Performs nightly MySQL dumps of database
Sysstat Logs historical system information via sar
PHPMyAdmin Graphical interface for working with MySQL (Ubuntu only)


This should only be ran on fresh, base installation of the operating system. If a LAMP installation already exists or if this server is already being used for other tasks, this script will likely break your server! You have been warned!

Download and setup the LAMP stack by:

cd /root
git clone
cd bash-lamp-installer

Once the installer is done, you will receive a setup report that will contain the details of the setup. An example of this is shown below:

                 LAMP Installation Complete

The LAMP installation has been completed!  Some important information is
posted below.  A copy of this setup report exists in /root/setup_report.

                 Security Credentials

Apache Server Status URL:
Apache Server Status User:  serverinfo
Apache Server Status Pass:  **************

PHPMyAdmin User: serverinfo / root
PHPMyAdmin Pass: ************** / **************

MySQL Root User:  root 
MySQL Root Pass:  **************

** For security purposes, there is an htaccess file in front of phpmyadmin.
So when the popup window appears, use the serverinfo username and password. 
Once your on the phpmyadmin landing page, use the root MySQL credentials.

If you lose this setup report, the credentails can be found in:
Apache Server Status:  /root/.serverstatus
PHPMyAdmin:            /root/.phpmyadmin
MySQL Credentials:     /root/.my.cnf

                 Nightly MySQL Backups

MySQL backups are being performed via Holland ( and
is set to run nightly at 3:30AM server time.  

The critical information about Holland is below:

Backup directory:  /var/lib/mysqlbackup
Backups run time:  Nightly at 3:30AM server time
Retention rate:    7 days

Holland log file:  /var/log/holland/holland.log
Holland configs:   /etc/holland/holland.conf
