Ubuntu 16.04 LAMP server tutorial with Apache 2.4, PHP 7 and MariaDB (instead of MySQL)

LAMP is short for Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP. This tutorial shows how you can install an Apache 2 web server on an Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus) server with PHP 7 (mod_php) and MySQL support. Additionally, I will install PHPMyAdmin to make MySQL administration easier. A LAMP setup is the perfect basis for CMS systems like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal.
