Installing LAMP no internet connection

Postby devian on Mon Jun 10, 2013 10:54 am

Hi guys, where I work there's an outdated computer with Linux Mint DE and no internet connection (there's a network connected to it as it serves some apps to other computers) what I need to know is if there's a way to install LAMP on it? since I need to develop some php apps
Thanks in advance

Hi devian,

You could try using apt-offline to update the old machine via another PC and a USB stick. I'm guessing that if you mark the packages for LAMP for installation you can also use it to get the new packages too.

Offline Package Management for APT

The question is, how would you get apt-offline onto the old machine in the first place :?

Code: Select all
Package: apt-offline                     
New: yes
State: not installed
Version: 1.2
Priority: optional
Section: admin
Maintainer: Ritesh Raj Sarraf <>
Architecture: all
Uncompressed Size: 426 k
Depends: python2.7 | python2.6, python (>= 2.6.6-7~), python (< 2.8), python-argparse, apt, less
Description: offline APT package manager
apt-offline is an Offline APT Package Manager.

apt-offline can fully update and upgrade an APT based distribution without connecting to the network, all of it transparent to APT.

apt-offline can be used to generate a signature on a machine (with no network). This signature contains all download information
required for the APT database system. This signature file can be used on another machine connected to the internet (which need not
be a Debian box and can even be running windows) to download the updates. The downloaded data will contain all updates in a format
understood by APT and this data can be used by apt-offline to update the non-networked machine.

apt-offline can also fetch bug reports and make them available offline.

What about downloading xampp to an online machine? The tar.gz file is about 85MB. You could then use a USB stick to transfer the tar.gz file to the offline machine. Then install to that machine.

I've used xampp to test some php pages. Once you've installed xampp, I'd suggest making a soft link to a working directory in your home directory from the xampp htdocs directory to make things easy.
