Lets talk about LAMP

Often i come across people who raise their eyebrows when exposed to the most commonly term in the web-o-sphere, LAMP. This post is dedicated to all those readers to whom this word sounds greek.


LAMP refers to Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP, an open-source Web application platform which uses Linux as the Operating System, Apache is the most commonly used Web Server, MySQL as the RDBMS database and PHP as the scripting language to generate dynamic pages. In LAMP, Perl or Python is often substituted for PHP.

Today, LAMP has become a general development standard and almost all the products that make up the LAMP stack are included by default in nearly all Linux distributions. Also, it is reliable and robust and if Apache is any indicator, then in the web application world, LAMP sites predominate.

Do share with me your thoughts about Open Source Web Development. I would love to hear from you.
