    I have had major problems installing LAMP previously and completely wrecked the installation beyond recovery. Re-installed Linux Mint 19.1, then closely followed this tutorial. SUCCESS!! Thank you Jason. One minor detail, the line “apt-get install php7.0-mysql” should read “apt-get install php7.2-mysql” but this was easily corrected. Great stuff!!

      I think PHP was updated since the time I made this guide, which would explain that discrepancy. Thanks for the information though, and I’m glad the guide helped!

    Hi, Jason. Thx for you tuto.
    A small prob :

    Now we’re ready to install the libraries to tie everything together, as well as PHPMyAdmin itself.

    apt-get install libapache2-mod-log-sql-mysql
    apt-get install php7.0-mysql
    apt-get install phpmyadmin

    Not php7.0, but php7.2
