Trying my best to uninstall and re-install LAMP-server programmes.....please help

Asked by Colin Burgess

Hi All,

I am a newbie to LAMP server (have been working with WAMP for a while) and find Ubuntu to be the far superior OS and platform for me.

However, I started to install Apache2 first, then PHP & MySQL. I think my laptop didn't go with the default options because I cannot (although I have installed it) find phpmyadmin or localhost.

I am trying to uninstall all of the above so that I can re-install with the default options (as per the tutorials I have now come accross), but can't seem to get rid of anything? Everytime I re-install it seems that I already have it installed, which just shows my incompetency at removing it in the first place.

Please help (and be kind, i'm new).

Syntax error on line 1 of /etc/apache2/conf.d/fqdn:
Invalid command 'SeverName', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration
