Installing LAMP on Ubuntu 11.04 aka The Natty Narwhal

As new user with Linux using Ubuntu 11.04 I was in the "now what?" moment.
Then I recalled Khalid's presentation on LAMP.
Exploring with the Google I found the following tutorials.

http://tuxtweaks.com/2010/04/installing-lamp-on-ubuntu-10-04-lucid-lynx/
http://tuxtweaks.com/2010/01/how-to-uninstall-lamp-in-ubuntu-9-10-karmic-koala/
http://tuxtweaks.com/2009/07/how-to-configure-apache-linux/

There were tuts going back a few revs but I thought 10.04 tut was close enough to 11.04.
And! Success! I now have a Linux webserver running LAMP.

updated 2013-02-17: some of the info in the txttweaks tuts is dated but still useful
see: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP
and https://help.ubuntu.com/12.10/serverguide/httpd.html

updated 2014-04-14: having to do an apache / apache2 rebuild / reinstall seems to be an annual exercise; on this go around, I found that the default conf files map to
/var/www/html; and that I had to drop in an index.html file into that directory to get
FF /localhost to bring up anything other than an empty "Index of /" page.

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Apache 2.4.9 (build: 2014-04-01)
