20170116 LAMP + Web server VM

I think this is maybe the second time in my life that I've successfully started the Apache service...

Tonight I:

  • Installed LAMP stack on my Linux Mint VM
  • Got everything up and running - it turns out this can be achieved using a single command!
  • Set up port forwarding to make my server visible to the wider world
  • Created my first three (incredibly basic) PHP pages
Pretty fun! Web development is pretty immediately rewarding. The write-run loop is super duper quick, plus it's fun that the weird little things you make can come alive literally from the moment you save the file in its editor. I mean, assuming you're live-editing your pages. And at the tier I am at, why not?
