I am running on ubuntu 10.04. Can someone tell me how to isntall:

  • PHP5
  • MySQL with support for PDO

All tutorials I've found are a bit old.

Have you actually tried some of those tutorials, or are you simply ignoring them because you feel they're "a bit old"? – John Gardeniers Aug 2 '10 at 10:12

sudo apt-get install apache2 php5 php5-mysql php-db mysql-server mysql-client

That should get you going. Possibly replace apache2 with the webserver software of your choice.
