Recently i have gone through tasksel command usage because of a server setup.why cant we use apt-get or aptitude there ? why Ubuntu wiki page has suggested me to do with tasksel only .is there any specific reason ? where else we have to use tasksel ?
Tasksel then asks me to set a root mysql server password. I either want to set this programatically (perhaps with an environment variable) or leave this as an empty password, which I can change manually later.
The problem started in the following way. I was using tasksel from the terminal menu that it shows when I simply do sudo tasksel. I select Lamp Server from the list and started to install all packages related to it. The problem is that by mistake my friend clicked on the termina close button and then on accept, closing the terminal and the activity tasksel was doing.
What is a difference by installing Apache/PHP/MySQL using tasksel install lamp-server and apt-get ?
What is recommended way to install such set in Ubuntu ?
Will I get something more by installing it via "tasksel install lamp-server" ?
I am using an ubutnu OS, I have installed LAMP stack using "tasksel", I am not able to find the "Configure Command" while I am going through phpinfo. But , in the same OS I am able to see the "Configure Command" only if I am compiling the php from source. Is anyone can explain how the tasksel hiding their "Configure Command" and how to find their "Configure Command".
I'm trying to figure out how to get lampserver installed on 12.04 and I've seen different commands. Can I safely assume that each of the commands listed below will give me the same results or do they differ in the packages that get install?
