    What distribution of Linux are you going to be working on?

    I am more than partial to Ubuntu, best GUI available for Linux distributions IMHO.
    And there's a thriving community of online help and resources available. Despite the great GUI, you'll still work in the command line quite a bit.

    Once you have the Linux part taken care of, the installation of the Apache server, and MySQL/PHP resources is pretty basic. Not too much maintenance once they're set up.

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP

    You'll want to get familiar with PHPMyadmin for creating and maintaining databases for your sites. Like setting up a wordpress/drupal database.

    If you want to run a local host testing server for developing on windows, WAMP is a pretty easy install.


    If you're going to use Ubuntu - http://help.ubuntu.com/community
    And as always, there's always great threads to be found on Stack Overflow!!!

    In a more basic description of what LAMP is/means,

    (L) Linux - the server operating system, I recommend Ubuntu.
    (A) Apache - the server HTTP software, low maintenance, plenty of documentation for custom needs, but works right out the box.
    (M) MySQL - the Relational Database, the heart of any dynamic content website. The ability to create and access tables and the information stored on them is where the true power of a website/app/program is found.
    (P) PHP - The server side programming language, the software that allows you to create scripts that will render the client side HTML from templates and database requests.
