After using Linux for a while I realised the to get a LAMP server
running I would have to install Apache and then the mysql and php
modules and then configure them.

So I decided that an easier way would be to install phpmyadmin which I
consider to be close enough to the LAMP server I wanted.

Now at some stage I would like to access the database via phpmyadmin.

Right now I just want to be able to parse php files through Apache.

Hope this makes some sort of sense.
