LAMP Development Service
Freely available and practically free software suite called LAMP. How correctly does this abbreviate? It consists of 4 popular technologies, which are in this bundle: Linux – the operating system; Apache is a web server; MySQL – DBMS; PHP is the programming language used to create Web resources.
This set of software is installed on the server to display dynamic Web sites and Web applications. This platform allows you to install (deploy) most types of websites and network software on your server.
The combination of LAMP is:
Server OS Linux for performing the necessary tasks;
the Apache web server, for which many additional modules have been created, which solve the problem of the joint operation of the web server and scripts written in a variety of programming languages;
Server language of dynamic scripts PHP (or Perl);
The MySQL database, which demonstrates the excellent performance of SQL queries and is ideal for small and medium-sized projects. MySQL runs on Unix and Windows, it has a special convenience in work.
-If necessary, the environment for web development and testing of applications that are written for LAMP. This is the same as for your own applications, and for any CMS you need. You can work on Windows and on Ubuntu;
-If you need to make a productive web server on the virtual VPS server or on a dedicated server for hosting your projects;
-If you need a server for version control systems;
-For self-learning administration;
-For economic purposes, to create your own server.
As a weighty advantage of this build : it is great for quickly deploying an application, because of the simple configuration, but it still does not have enough functionality in terms of scalability and isolation of components.
Among the shortcomings of such an assembly should be noted the following:
The application and the database use the same server resources (CPU, memory, I / O, etc.), which results in low performance and makes it difficult to determine the source (application or database) of this problem. There is also interference in the implementation of horizontal scaling.
Installing LAMP (Linux + Apache + MySQL + PHP / Perl / Python) is a fairly widely used option for setting up servers with Ubuntu. There are a large number of applications that have open source code and are written using the LAMP application stack. Popular LAMP applications: wiki encyclopedias, content management systems (CMS) and control applications, for example, phpMyAdmin.
An important advantage of LAMP is its flexibility in the selection of databases, web servers and scripting languages. The actual replacement for MySQL is PostgreSQL and SQLite. Python, Perl and Ruby can be replaced with PHP. And Nginx, Cherokee and Lighttpd are an alternative to Apache.
To quickly install LAMP, use tasksel. Tasksel is a Debian / Ubuntu tool that installs several dependent packages into your system as a single task.
