Verifying successful LAMP install?

Postby MLG_Chump » 2017/10/16 15:05:35

I'm pretty beginner-level with Linux so I apologize if I'm ignorant of basic stuff. I'm installing (or attempting to install) a LAMP server on my CentOS 7 machine. I believe I've installed all the correct packages I need but I'm not entirely sure. I've googled for about an hour for a list of the necessary packages that are required for a LAMP server to run but I've not found a concise list. My question is, how do I verify that I have all the necessary packages I need for my LAMP server? I'm using the Digital Ocean guide for installing LAMP on Cent OS as an FYI.

Also, "systemctl start mysqld" results in a mysqld.service: Unit not found. What would that be indicative of?

It's indicative that you're running CentOS 7 which doesn't ship mysql at all, it's replaced with a fork called mariadb which is Oracle-free.

Avoid any guides which tell you to disable selinux and/or iptables.
