How To Install LAMP On Ubuntu 16.04 With A Single Command

sudo apt-get install lamp-server^

as of March 18, 2017:
MySQL version: 5.7.17
PHP version: 7.0.15

Warning :

DO NOT remove the complete Lamp package using:

$ sudo apt-get --purge remove lamp-server^


$ sudo apt-get remove lamp-server^

because lamp-server^ is a Meta Package. It will install many dependencies as part of LAMP server. So if you remove it using apt-get, It will remove all those dependencies along with SSH server/OpenSSH Package and you will lose connection to your server through SSH.
