LAMP Stack One-Click App Setup


Introduction

One of the many available One-Click Apps that we have is LAMP. LAMP stack is a popular open source web platform commonly used to run dynamic web sites and servers. It includes Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP/Python/Perl and is considered by many the platform of choice for development and deployment of high performance web applications which require a solid and reliable foundation.

Prerequisites

  • Orbit created with LAMP image

  • Running Orbit

Creating Your Orbit

  1. To create your application, you must create a Photon. You can do so by selecting the Photon tab after selecting 'Create Orbit'

    Photons
  2. Once there, you will see a list of available photons that you can create. Select one and it will bring you to a detailed page

  4. Once everything is filled in, just press Create and you can move on to the next step

SSH into Orbit

  1. First we need to check some details on our orbit by first navigating to the “My Orbits” tab.

  2. Once there, click on the Orbit you want to connect to and check for three things:

    • IP Address

    • Running Status

    • Source Image(Ubuntu, Debian, Centos, Fedora)

    Orbit Details
  3. Once you have confirmed that your Orbit is running and you have the other information. Open up your console.

  4. Now you can SSH into your Orbit by running.

    ssh [email protected]
    • IP Address: We got this from the detail page, in this case it is “216.200.116.60”

    • Image: We got this from the source image in the details page. It should be one of the following: ubuntu, debian, fedora, centos

    • Note: A full command for this example would be: “ssh [email protected]

Starting LAMP

  1. Once you are SSH'd into the server you will see the following.

    LAMP CMD
  2. If we navigate to your Orbit's IP Address we will see the following image which means that Apache2 is working properly

    LAMP Apache
  3. Also you can run MySQL and start working with the database as well

    mysql -u root -p

    When it asks to enter a password, enter 'password' without the quotes

    LAMP MySQL
  4. Now that everything is up and running, you can start using your Orbit with Apache2, MySQL, and Python.
