  1. Test the LAMP Stack:
    Create a PHP info file to test the installation. Create a file named info.php in your web root directory (often /var/www/html/):

Open your web browser and navigate to http://your_server_ip/info.php. You should see the PHP information page.

  1. Firewall Configuration:
    If you have a firewall enabled, you may need to open the necessary ports. For Apache, you can use:
    sudo firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=http sudo firewall-cmd --reload

These steps provide a basic LAMP stack on CentOS. Depending on your application requirements, you might need to install additional PHP modules or configure Apache for specific use cases. Adjust the configurations as needed for your environment and application.
