Install LAMP Stack ( Apache, MariaDB, php, phpMyAdmin) on Fedora 22/23/24
2a) Enabling public access to the web server
By default web server is only accessible as localhost. If you want to access publicly you need to allow
http & https in firewall.
[Allow http in firewall] $ sudo firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=http success [Allow https in firewall] $ sudo firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=https success [Reload firewall] $ sudo systemctl reload firewalld
3) Install MariaDB
MariaDB is a drop in replacement for MySQL. MariaDB is open-source relational database management system (RDBMS) which is supporting database access. It’s robust, scalable, and reliable SQL server for high availability databases as free of cost.
[Install MariaDB] $ sudo dnf install mariadb-server [Start the MariaDB service] $ sudo systemctl start mariadb.service [Enable MariaDB in boot] $ sudo systemctl enable mariadb.service
3a) Set MySQL root password
By default there is no password for MySQL instant and you need to run the below command to set the root password for security reason. I advise you to secure MySQL installation using
mysql_secure_installation method which will set root password and adjust other settings to make more secure.
[MariaDB Secure installation] $ sudo mysql_secure_installation NOTE: RUNNING ALL PARTS OF THIS SCRIPT IS RECOMMENDED FOR ALL MariaDB SERVERS IN PRODUCTION USE! PLEASE READ EACH STEP CAREFULLY! Enter current password for root (enter for none): Press Enter OK, successfully used password, moving on... Set root password? [Y/n] y New password: Re-enter new password: Password updated successfully! Reloading privilege tables.. ... Success! Remove anonymous users? [Y/n] y ... Success! Disallow root login remotely?

[Y/n] y ... Success! Cleaning up... All done! If you've completed all of the above steps, your MariaDB installation should now be secure. Thanks for using MariaDB!
