I am becoming more and more impressed with the WSL for Windows 10 Creators Update.
I installed apache and mysql and so far it appears to be working just fine and dandy !!
sudo apt-get install apache2
sudo apt-get install mysql-server
sudo apt-get install php libapache2-mod-php
sudo apt-get install php-mysql
sudo vim /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
AcceptFilter http none
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
sudo service mysql restart
and voila!, you have a web server running.
http://localhost is alive.
So it really is behaving like a real ubuntu shell. Wowser. Windows just became more of a developers dream.
