LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) is an open source Web development platform that uses Linux as operating system, Apache as the Web server, MySQL as the relational database management system and PHP as the object-oriented scripting language.
To install the LAMP stack with PHPMyAdmin on Ubuntu, fire up your terminal and type the following command:
sudo apt-get install lamp-server^ phpmyadmin
If you’re curious, the caret (^) in the command means that it’s a Taskel task. This link has a fairly good explanation of Taskel.
To access PHPMyAdmin, open terminal & type:
sudo gedit /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
Add this line somewhere in that file:
Finally restart Apache using:
sudo service apache2 restart

Your car is German. Your vodka is Russian. Your pizza is Italian. Your kebab is Turkish. Your democracy is Greek. Your coffee is Brazilian. Your movies are American. Your humor is Jewish.

And you complain that your neighbor is an immigrant?
If the person who killed 90+ people in Norway was a Muslim, the press would have declared him as terrorist. For now though, he is just an ‘Assailant’, ‘Attacker’ (Reuters), ‘Gunman’ (BBC, CNN & Al Jazeera). Looks like ‘terrorist’ is a name reserved for Muslim? The US Dept of State calls it an an ‘Act of violence’, Not an ‘Act of Terrorism’.
This is how media manipulates our mind – though subtly.
