LAMP Stack Training
LAMP is an open source Web development platform that uses Linux as the operating
system, Apache as the Web server, MySQL as the relational database management
system and PHP as the object-oriented scripting language.
(Sometimes Perl or Python is used instead of PHP.)
Because the platform has four layers, LAMP is sometimes referred to as a LAMP stack.
Stacks can be built on different operating systems. Developers that use these tools with
a Windows operating system instead of Linux are said to be using WAMP; with
a Macintosh system, MAMP; and with a Solaris system, SAMP.
The key to the idea behind LAMP, a term formerly invented by Michael Kunze in the German magazine cot in 1998, is the use of these items together. Although not actually designed to work together, these open source software alternatives are readily and freely available as each of the components in the LAMP stack is an example of Free or Open Source Software (FOSS).
Features of the course
LAMP has become a de facto development standard. Today, the products that make up the LAMP stack are included by default in nearly all Linux distributions, and together they make a powerful web application platform.
