  3. Update the system packages by running the following command: sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y
  4. Install the required dependencies by running the following command: sudo apt install apache2 mysql-server mysql-client php libapache2-mod-php php-mysql wget
  5. Configure and secure MySQL server by running the following command: sudo mysql_secure_installation Follow the prompts to set a root password, remove anonymous users, disallow remote root login, and remove test databases.
