LAMP systems allow you to run dynamic web pages on your server or even on your home computer. In this tutorial, we build a LAMP server for the Debian 10 (Buster) operating system, which includes the following components: MariaDB 10.3.18, Apache 2.4.38, PHP 7.3 and phpMyAdmin 4.9.1. This page will install Apache, MariaDB and PHP components.

The speed of data transfer from the hard drives of the machine is an important consideration when building a home computer or server. Slow speeds on the machine will severely degrade overall performance, even if the processor and / or RAM represent a stronger category. It is possible to measure this with every operating system, and it is no different in Linux systems. In this tutorial we will test the speed of our HDD in several ways to get a more comprehensive picture of the state of our devices.
In this tutorial we will install a minimum Debian 10 (Buster) server, which consists of the Debian 10 base system and some basic configuration. This installation will be the basis for later LAMP and perfect server tutorials. On this page, we download the Debian 9 (Stretch) installation package and follow the steps of the installation program.
Our favorite virtualization software, VirtualBox, has undergone many improvements over the past period. The newer version (6) is 2018. December 18, which has been the subject of many innovations and has been continuously improved ever since. At the time of writing this article, we are on 6.0.14, which is 2019. was released on October 15. In this tutorial we will install the current 6.0.14 version on a Debian 10 (Buster) host system.
The official repository for the Debian 9 (Stretch) system is available with the 7.0.x version of PHP, which is a little overdue and will not receive any updates. Therefore, we may need newer versions if we are running live web pages, or we can even upgrade our test environment. In this tutorial, we will conveniently install multiple PHP versions using deb.sury.org's external repository, which can be used side-by-side on our Debian-based servers using the PHP-FPM Server API.
The important thing about programming is that when you write a program that performs a specific task, your code should be prepared for multiple scenarios, variations, and if possible, parameterized - to fine-tune its operation. This is no different for shell scripts. In today's example, we'll look at how we can flexibly handle the parameters we get in our scripts to help make programs easier for others to use.
