LAMP Linux Apache Mysql Php
LAMP is a solution stack composed for building high-availability heavy-duty dynamic web sites of various purposes and of all nature. LAMP refers to first letters of the four components Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP. The original expansion is as follows:
Linux, referring to the operating system that is freely distributed and open source
Apache, the Web server
My SQL, open-source relational database management system
PHP, server-side scripting language
Though the originators of these open source components did not design them all to work specifically with each other, the combination has become popular because of its low acquisition cost and because of the ubiquity of its components. When used in combination they represent a LAMP solution stack of technologies that support application servers.
The benefits of using the LAMP stack are:
Very low cost compared to other technologies
LAMP is available as free software
LAMP has proven faster, more flexible, and easier than any other alternative
A vast majority of web 2.0 websites are built on LAMP stack. Large and well-known portals are built using LAMP stack. Some of the typical applications include eCommerce, Social Networking Portals, Content Management Systems, Forums, Blogs, CRM, Help / Ticketing Systems, Games, Backend for mobile apps and many more.
Having deep LAMP experience our team knows where the power of the LAMP stack shines. By combining a Web server (Apache), dynamic components (using PHP), and a database (MySQL) our LAMP web app developers create truly database-driven and dynamic websites that are easy to update and provide rich functionality to support users. The easiest way to see the master and functionality of the LAMP stack in action is to take a look at our portfolio, where lots of LAMP-based web applications are presented.
The challenge today is choosing a solution stack that supports current trends, yet remains up-to-date in the future as technology evolves. LAMP stack scales nicely, it works really well and has penetrated the web over the years. No doubt LAMP is a very good choice, that’s why one of our core competencies is creating complex and simple web applications that are easy to comprehend, execute and run based on LAMP.
