What is LAMP?

LAMP (Linux + Apache + MySQL + PHP) is an open-source technology stack used to develop the most robust and scalable dynamic web sites and web applications across different industry verticals. LAMP 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.

A Unix-like, open source and community-developed operating system (OS) for computers, servers, mainframes, mobile devices and embedded devices. Linux is the best-known and most-used open-source operating system in the world.

Apache is a web server software that is responsible for accepting HTTP requests from visitors and sending them back the requested information in the form of web pages. In other words, it allows visitors to view content on your website. Similar to Linux, Apache is free and open-sourced.

MySQL is an open source relational database management system (RDBMS) with a client-server model, while RDBMS is a software or service used to create and manage databases based on a relational model.

PHP is a server-side scripting language that is used to develop Static websites or Dynamic websites or Web applications. Before JavaScript’s reign in current time, PHP used to be the most popular programming language for front-end web development.


LAMP provides unique advantages that enable fast and cost-efficient development of scalable, easy-to-use applications.

  • Scalable: Any apps or websites built with this technology will shrink or grow with the demands being placed on it.
  • Platform independent: Work on a variety of operating systems (OS), including Windows, Linux, Android, and iOS.
  • Lots of freedom and control: Easy to customize to meet the requirements. Coding process is transparent.
  • Highly secure: Robust Linux architecture ensures secured and safe web development.
  • Fast and efficient development: LAMP-based product can be developed quickly, thanks to the ready availability of open-source libraries and frameworks that reduce coding times (and costs).
  • Vast resource library: The development community has access to countless resources and libraries to innovate and build new functionalities and features.
