Ever wondered if you could install the LAMP stack (on Linux Mint/Ubuntu) with one simple command?
One would say let's do:
$ sudo apt-get install php5 mysql-server apache2
However, there's a shorter way of accomplishing that. Try:
$ sudo apt-get install lamp-server^
Or if you like things a bit more graphical, you could do:
$ sudo tasksel install lamp-server
And your LAMP is ready!
