Linux Apache MySQL PHP

LAMP stands for Linux - Apache - MySQL - PHP. It brings together the 4 major dynamic web services tools in the world:

Apache, first POSIX operation system published under GPL license, represents more that half of the Internet servers in service and is in constant growth. Apache, also available under GPL license, nearly has a monopole, being the most used web server throughout the world. MySQL, is the most popular of Open Source SQL database servers. PHP, the dynamic web page generator, often associated with databases like MySQL, Postgres, or Oracle, is the reference for professional web sites developers.

This course teaches how to configure a LAMP platform and use it as a PHP development environment.
