Before this work i had no idea about web development.
i started with installation of Apache, my SQL and then PHP
first of all you should have root privilege
In terminal type

sudo -i

Install Apache

To install apache, open terminal and type in these commands:
sudo apt-get install apache2

Install MySQL

To install MySQL, open terminal and type :
sudo apt-get install mysql-server libapache2-mod-auth-mysql php5-mysql

Once you have installed MySQL, we should activate it with this command:
sudo mysql_install_db

Finish up by running the MySQL set up script:
sudo /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation

The prompt will ask you for your current root password.
Type it in.
Enter current password for root (enter for none):
OK, successfully used password, moving on…

Then the prompt will ask you if you want to change the root password. Go ahead and choose N and move on to the next steps.
It’s easiest just to say Yes to all the options. At the end, MySQL will reload and implement the new changes.
type Y for every questionInstall PHP

PHP is an open source web scripting language that is widely use to build dynamic webpages.
To install PHP, open terminal and type in this command.
sudo apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5 php5-mcrypt

After you answer yes to the prompt twice, PHP will install itself.
It may also be useful to add php to the directory index, to serve the relevant php index files:
sudo nano /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/dir.conf
