Now that we have built our $100 Linux development server on VirtualBox, we can start install LAMP or Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP. Once we get the entire LAMP server setup, we can install phpMyAdmin and create a new database user for your local development server.

I use a server setup like this for local development with my business and it works wonders. It can be moved, does not break easily, and can be saved and transferred to another SSD quickly and efficiently.

Buy the Samsung SSD we used:
