What is the LAMP stack?

LAMP is a stack of free open-source software components, typically Linux / Apache / MySQL & PHP.

LAMP was named after these four open-source components: Linux (Operating System), Apache (Web Server), MySQL (Database), and PHP (Programming Language). Used together as a solution stack, LAMP makes the development of dynamic, database driven web sites and applications possible.

The LAMP stack is however not limited to these original four components: LAMP can be adapted with a multitude of componentry (typically also free & open-source). For example, the operating system, web server, database, and/or programming language(s) can all be interchanged with other desired similar components.

Hosting

One of the most common types of web site hosting available today is based on LAMP or a similar open source stack. In fact, around 64% of active websites in use today are running open-source web servers (Netcraft).

Development

One of the attractions of LAMP based hosting is that there are little to no license fees. Not only does that mean less overheads and costs for web hosting, it also comes with a plethora of free/open-source software. These include CMSs, development frameworks, and applications all freely available with no upfront or ongoing licenses or proprietary costs.
