In this video we set up a LAMP stack web server for local development on an Ubuntu desktop (version 11.10). We will walk through installing and using tasksel to get the web server installed, then we'll add phpmyadmin to the mix. Once we have the server up and running, we'll look at where the web root is and how to add websites. Finally we wrap up with a quick look at how to start, stop, and restart our server when needed.
