If you're just starting out as a web developer or designer, you should know about LAMP and how to use it. This episode introduces you to the basics.

LAMP (software bundle)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
LAMP is an acronym for an archetypal model of web service solution stacks, originally consisting of largely interchangeable components: Linux, the Apache HTTP Server, the MySQL relational database management system, and the PHP programming language. As a solution stack, LAMP is suitable for building dynamic web sites and web applications.

Great episode!

I enjoyed this episode, i have installed a LAMP stack before and the reason i listened to this episode was that my hands were full and i couldn't skip. but I'm glad i listened, the way you explained the installation and defining things as you mentioned them made it easy to understand.

only thing i didn't hear that i was waiting for was that you didn't mention Virtual machines! their great for testing software and server applications.

The host responds

Great point, tcuc. I guess I wasn't thinking about VM's or docker images or anything else, because I was seeing this as an introductory episode to the LAMP stack as A Thing.

I am making note of your idea, though, and might just record something about the use for VM-based web hosting later!

Thanks for listening, and for commenting!
