I need to setup a user account (role) for an application administrator on a Windows 2012 server.   He/she should be able to install MySQL, PHP, associated webserver etc.    What role should I use to create this user's account?   Any  help will be highly appreciated.    Thanks.

you could go into delegation of users.. but a lamp stack is only ever installed once per machine. it is not an ongoing requirement
