How to set up locally, my allready uploaded website, so i can test changes

I have an ubuntu 18.04 operating system.
my website is up and running. it uses a database made in mysql.
it was installed as it was.
paid for it as opensource , got it, installed it.

now i would like to make some changes to it. i would like to download the database and connect it locally with the files that i got from ftp server.

i can export a dump file from my database so i can probably feed the database that i will have to create.

my problem is that i have no idea how to set up LAMP to ubuntu.
what kind of program would be best to edit php files that are going to be downloaded?

apache , mysql , php are installed but i have no idea how to configure them so i can make it work locally.

Any help?
