Installing LAMP Server on Red Hat Fedora 16

Previously I have posted about installing LAMP Server on Ubuntu. That was quite easy comparatively to what I am going to share here.
We are going to install LAMP Server on Fedora 16.
Firstly There is no single command installation I could find on the GOOGLE. We have to explicitly install every component of LAMP Server manually.
Lets start installing LAMP Server.
Lets install APACHE First.

Open terminal and type su and then enter root password to become root user for installation.
Now type: yum install httpd
This command will install, Apache server on your machine.

Installation of LAMP Server on Ubuntu (LINUX APACHE MYSQL PHP on UBUNTU)

If you are PHP developer and working on Linux i.e. Ubuntu Desktop, then you must need to have one LAMP setup on your local machine to develop and test pages before you directly update the pages to real website.

There are different ways to install APACHE, MYSQL and PHP on ubuntu desktop. I will try to mention the easiest one.
Before posting this tutorial, I have tested all these on my machine and all are working perfectly fine.

Firstly the easiest one.
In a single command, you can install Linux Apache Mysql Php stack on your machine. You need to open terminal and have to type the following command:

sudo apt-get install lamp-server^
make sure you are typing the ^ symbol also at the end.
press enter. It will ask for password. Enter your password and it will continue with installation process.

Second way, using tasksel utility.
If you want to have the feeling of ubuntu server style installation, then you should go for using tasksel utility. For this, you have to first install this.

To install tasksel, type:
sudo apt-get install tasksel
and press ENTER. Then provide your password and installation will start.
one installation is finished, now type:
sudo tasksel
and press ENTER.
It will bring up BLUE screen in the terminal with various pre-defined packages of UBUNTU. Just select LAMP SERVER and press SPACE. then press ENTER. It will install the APACHE MYSQL PHP on your machine.

Using tasksel can help you to install or un-install other variants of the server packages very easily. every time you have to type sudo tasksel and you can select the package of your choice.

Third way, little expanded one.
you have to install all three 1.Apache 2. MYSQL 3.PHP, seperately.

To install, type the following:
sudo apt-get install apache2 php5 mysql-server

this command will install all the three packages.

and in the if you wish to work with PHPMYADMIN, then to install, type the following:
sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin
this will install phpmyadmin, web based interface to manage MYSQL Server Databases.

Installing Red Hat Fedora 16 without Internet / Network

Al last, I am able to find how to install Red Hat Fedora 16 without Internet Connection or Network Connection. It was very tedious task to find the solution. Tried many solutions, but none of them was working.
So, at last go through few forums, I was able to get the solution which I am going to share here with you.

You need to download the DVD of latest Fedora edition i.e Fedora 16.
Then you need Fedora Live USB Creator latest edition.
A pendrive of 4GB. Personally I will suggest use 8 GB Pen drive.
Use your LIVE USB Creator and to transfer the ISO to Pen drive.
Transferring may take some times one hour also.
After successful transfer, reboot your system
Make changes in BIOS to boot from USB.
Once changes made in BIOS, your system will boot from Pen Drive.
System will show you 2 options :
1. Install / Upgrade Fedora 16
2. Troubleshooting.

Select first option and do not press ENTER. Press TAB on your key board.
It will show you command prompt with command already written.
Do not change / remove here.

Just enter SPACE from keyboard and type the following as it is:

and then press enter. Now you will not be asked to connect to internet or network during the installation. You can enjoy installation without internet from your pen drive.

Make sure on PACKAGE SELECTION SCREEN, just select "installation repo". If you select any other option also, that will require internet access.
I hope this may help many people who do not have internet but want to use FEDORA 16.

THis tutorial may help those also who are trying to install from DVD. in that case they don't need LIVE USB Creator. Just burn the DVD with ISO. Insert the DVD and boot from the DVD. Then same options will be followed as mentioned above.
