Complete LAMP package

BenD10 asked:

I was told to install a LAMP setup on one of our Red Hat servers by my boss. I started by installing the generic httpd, php and mysql packages but he keeps telling me there is one package that automatically installs all of them. Including forcing correct dependencies and ensuring compatibility between them.

Has anyone heard of a Red Hat package like this?

My answer:

On a Red Hat based system, there actually is no such package which will pull in everything necessary for a basic LAMP stack. A minute or so with repoquery is sufficient to demonstrate this.

To install such a stack, you need at minimum:

httpd php php-mysql mysql-server
