i want to install lamp-server in ubuntu 10.10 (the end goal is to install redmine), i am using

sudo tasksel install lamp-server

However after downloading packages it asks for a root password for mysql, now, in my machine i have already an instance of MariaDB 5.24 and i want it to use that (not download or install real mysql), what do i need to do in order to properly configure it with the right database?


More From » 10.10


As bgvaughan stated, tasksel provides package 'groups' in order to setup complete and correctly configured, fully integrated services.

'M' from the 'LAMP' initials refers to mySQL, therefore tasksel will automatically try to install and configure mysql-server.

If you want to use mariaDB, you should install apache & php separately:

sudo apt-get install apache2

sudo apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5

I haven't worked with mariaDB, but i've heard that it's a binary drop-in replacement for mysql, so i guess it should be working ok.
