    open the terminal and type the following command

    sudo apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5

    if you are login from the user account it will ask for the password after interning the password PHP will install automatically.After the PHP installation restart the apache web server

    sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

    For testing purpose weather php is running or not make a php file in “/var/www” (folder path) ‘test.php’ open the php file using any editor im using gedit so open as

    gedit test.php

    and type simple save the file and open the browser and type http://localhost/test.php and it will show the php information.

    Installing Mysql:

    open the terminal and type the following command

    sudo apt-get install mysql-server

    it will install the mysql automatically now create password for the mysql root user open the terminal and type mysql so now u r in the mysql console .To create password type

    SET PASSWORD FOR ‘root’@’localhost’ = PASSWORD(‘yourpassword’);

    here ‘yourpassword’ is your password and u can put anything on password.

    Installing PHPMYADMIN:

    open the terminal and type the following command

    sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin

    during the installtion it will ask about the web server and mysql password choose apache as web server and type your mysql password . now open apache.conf file using

    gedit /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

    and add this line to apache2.conf

    Include /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf .

    now restart the apache sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

    Test for phpmyadmin:

    open your browser and just type http://localhost/phpmyadmin it will open the phpmyadmin SO now your system is ready for the joomla installation

    Joomla Installation:

    Extract joomla in “var/www”(Folder path) now open the bowser and type http://localhost it will show the joomla folder as below
