LAMP Stack

Glossary of Web Design Terms

Linux, Apache, PHP, and MySQL web site development

LAMP Stack

LAMP stack is the combination of Linux (a multi-user, multi-tenant operating system), Apache (an open source web server), MySQL (a SQL style database), and PHP (a scripting language for web page development).

Why Does This Matter to Me?

By building your dynamic web sites on the LAMP architecture, you inherit a greater degree of stability and security than with many other back-end architectures. This insures that your site is safe, secure, and fast. It also can keep much of the burden of the site on the server, rather than delivering it to the site visitor, further improving your site's apparent speed.

Levi needed a site to provide information about him and his music, as well as to drive fans and potential booking agents to, as well as to link people to his Facebook and iTunes profiles. He also needed something he could upgrade in the future to include other features, such as performances or merchandise sales.
