Anytime that I've installed PHP, it's always been on my box. If I was using an ISP, they always had it in place as an option I simply chose. So, now I'm being asked by a co-worker who's setting up PHP on a Linux server "What do you need?"

I'm assuming the answer would be to simply download LAMP, just like you would WAMP (http://www.wampserver.com/en/), but there's the issue: I don't see that kind of option with LAMP.

So, my administrator sent me this email, asking if I needed anything else. Not sure what to tell him and was hoping someone with a mind greater than my own could look this over and tell me whether or not anything else is needed.

Thanks!
