LAMP Web Development
LAMP is a combination of free, open source software. The acronym LAMP refers to the first letters of Linux (operating system), Apache HTTP Server, MySQL (database software), and PHP, Perl or Python, principal components to build a viable general purpose web server.
The exact combination of software included in a LAMP package may vary, especially with respect to the web scripting software, as Perl or Python are sometimes dropped from the stack. Similar terms exist for essentially the same software suite (AMP) running on other operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows (WAMP), Mac OS (MAMP), Solaris (SAMP), iSeries (iAMP), or OpenBSD (OAMP).
Though the original authors of these programs did not design them all to work specifically with each other, the development philosophy and tool sets are shared and were developed in close conjunction. The software combination has become popular because it is free of cost, open-source, and therefore easily adaptable, and because of the ubiquity of its components which are bundled with most current Linux distributions. When used together, they support web application servers.
LAMP Web Development
Short for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP, an open-source Web development platform, also called a Web stack, that uses Linux as the operating system, Apache as the Web server, MySQL as the RDBMS and PHP as the object-oriented scripting language. Perl or Python is often substituted for PHP.
The key to the idea behind LAMP, a term originally coined by Michael Kunze in the German magazine c't 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).
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.
The original LAMP acronym has spawned a number of other, related acronyms that capitalize on the main focus of the original combination of technologies to provide feature rich Web sites. Some of these related Web stacks include LAPP, MAMP, and BAMP.
The exclusive web development performed by our in-house team of highly proficient and experienced professionals in the LAMP open-source web development platform is highly acknowledged by our clients and industry experts from all over the world. Linux, Apache, Mysql and PHP are a comprehensive web stack that uses the incredible Linux as its operating system. We have a team of highly experienced technical professionals who work exceedingly hard with our extraordinary acquired skill-set in this platform of bespoke web development. These days LAMP has exceedingly become the most a de facto development standard. The products that make up the LAMP stack are included by default in almost all Linux distributions, and together form a heavy loaded and powerful web development platform.
Like the other LAMP components, Linux is free open-source software which means the source code is available for the operating system, which can be edited according to specific needs.
Apache is an open source web server, the most popular in use.
MySQL is a multithreaded, multi-user, SQL database management system (DBMS) now owned by Oracle Corporation. Alternatives at this level of the stack do also exist, for example by using PostgreSQL (LAPP).
MySQL has been owned by Oracle Corporation since January 27, 2010 through the purchase of Sun Microsystems. Sun had originally acquired MySQL on February 26, 2008.
PHP, Perl, or Python
PHP is a reflective programming language originally designed for producing dynamic web pages. PHP is used mainly in server-side application software. Perl and Python can be used similarly.

Variants and equivalents on other platforms
With the growing use of LAMP, variations and retronyms appeared for other combinations of operating system, web server, database, and software language. For example the equivalent installation on a Microsoft Windows operating system is known as WAMP. An alternative running IIS in place of Apache called WIMP. Variants involving other operating systems include MAMP (Macintosh), SAMP (Solaris), FAMP (FreeBSD) and iAMP (iSeries). The web server or database management system also vary. LEMP is a version where Apache has been replaced with the more lightweight web server Nginx. A version where MySQL has been replaced by PostgreSQL is called LAPP.
A server running LAMP may be colloquially known as a lamp box, punning on the type of post box. The GNU project is advocating people to use the term "GLAMP" since what is known as "Linux" includes the GNU tools as well as the Linux kernel.

- XAMPP :
XAMPP is a free and open source cross-platform web server solution stack package, consisting mainly of the Apache HTTP Server, MySQL database, and interpreters for scripts written in the PHP and Perl programming languages.
- XAMPP's name is an acronym for :
- X (to be read as "cross", meaning cross-platform)
- Apache HTTP Server
Requirements and features
XAMPP requires only one zip, tar, 7z, or exe file to be downloaded and run, and little or no configuration of the various components that make up the web server is required. XAMPP is regularly updated to incorporate the latest releases of Apache, MySQL, PHP and Perl. It also comes with a number of other modules including OpenSSL and phpMyAdmin.
Self-contained, multiple instances of XAMPP can exist on a single computer, and any given instance can be copied from one computer to another. It is offered in both a full, standard version and a smaller version.
Officially, XAMPP's designers intended it for use only as a development tool, to allow website designers and programmers to test their work on their own computers without any access to the Internet. To make this as easy as possible, many important security features are disabled by default. In practice, however, XAMPP is sometimes used to actually serve web pages on the World Wide Web. A special tool is provided to password-protect the most important parts of the package.
XAMPP also provides support for creating and manipulating databases in MySQL and SQLite among others. Once XAMPP is installed, it is possible to treat a localhost like a remote host by connecting using an FTP client. Using a program like FileZilla has many advantages when installing a content management system (CMS) like Joomla. It is also possible to connect to localhost via FTP with an HTML editor.
XAMPP 1.8.2 for Windows, including :
- Apache 2.4.4
- MySQL 5.5.32
- PHP 5.4.16

- WAMP :
WAMPs are packages of independently created programs installed on computers that use a Microsoft Windows operating system.
WAMP (computing) is an acronym formed from the initials of the operating system Microsoft Windows and the principal components of the package: Apache, MySQL and one of PHP, Perl or Python. Apache is a web server. MySQL is an open-source database. PHP, Perl and Python are scripting languages that can manipulate information held in a database and generate web pages dynamically each time content is requested by a browser. Other programs may also be included in a package, such as phpMyAdmin which provides a graphical user interface for the MySQL database manager.
Lists, variants, and equivalents on other platforms :
Comparison of WAMPs
- MAMP: for the Mac OS operating system
- LAMP: for the Linux operating system
- WIMP: A similar package where the Apache is replaced by Internet Information Services (IIS)
- MAMP :
The acronym MAMP refers to a set of free software programs commonly used together to run dynamic web sites on servers running the Apple Macintosh operating system, Mac OS X :
- Mac OS X, the operating system ;
- Apache, the Web server;
- MySQL, the database management system (or database server);
- P for PHP, Perl, or Python, all programming languages used for web development.
Any open source Web platform made up of these software programs and built upon Mac OS X is a MAMP.
Though originally only Apache was integrated into Mac OS X, the combination has become popular because of its low cost and because of the ubiquity of its components, and Mac OS X 10.5 and above ships with PHP and is MySQL-ready. When used in combination they represent a solution stack of technologies that support application servers. MAMP may also be used with popular CMS programs like Drupal for setting up a local development environment.
Variants and equivalents on other platforms
With the growing use of LAMP, variations and retronyms appeared for other combinations of operating system, web server, database, and software language.
