Awesome guide for Noobies to install a LAMPP server!

So with the latest release Ubuntu Linux I set about moving my PHP web sites from my Windows 2003 Server to a LAMPP (Linux Apache MySQL PHP Python) server. I tell you I have succeeded in both the improved performance of Linux while retaining my drug like addiction to easy to use GUIs."

I was under the impression that installing things via GUI was not having to type commands.

1 stupid step: enabling the root user.

There's no use in doing that.

No need to enable the root account with tools like sudo or su.

Me too. I've come to realise in my few days of using Ubuntu, that using the terminal is more or less inevitable unless you just use it as it is "out-of-the-box".

Edit: Why the hell is he browsing the web on a server?

Only reason I know of is for web development purposes, but he doesn't seem to be doing that, so...

Enabling root allows to avoid the terminal on at least 2 or 3 steps. I just don't understand why everyone in the Linux community thinks it is such a sin!

Not a "sin". An "unnecessary security liability".

Years ago, 95% of the worlds desktop Operating Systems ran as root/admin. Today, Microsoft is trying to turn that around with Vista. It is more secure, therefore more sensible - especially on a server.

What if you enable root to do the setup and then disable it.... that would be just is safe, right?

Yeah, as long as you closed it out, it is no different than doing a su or sudo su to get a root terminal open.
