How i installed Drupal 8 on Ubuntu 16.04

Drupal 7 or Drupal 8? With some research, I had an idea on which Drupal version to opt for. I got to know that D7 is more documented and actually has more modules than D8 whereas D8 is more user-friendly with improved editing flexibility but with some modules not ported yet. Finally, I decided to give a chance to the latest Drupal version. As a beginner, I do not think I will need to work with advanced modules. Therefore in this step by step document, we will be installing Drupal 8 ! Step 1: Make sure everything is up to date First, I made sure all of my system packages are up to date by running the following commands. Using sudo su was very useful for not to waste time entering the same password again and again. sudo su sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade Step 2: Install LAMP(Linux, Apache, Mysql, Php) Using Tasksel allowed me to install all packag e s LAMP server contain. During the process, I had to enter a password for Mysql. This password was found to be needed later
