Tech stuff explained colorfully and simply.

What the fuck is the Lamp Stack?

Good fucken question. Lot of people don’t actually know - but they throw this term around. It’s like when someone says indubitably but they don’t know what the fuck that means. You’re already smarter than 3/4ths of the people who use this term by actually looking up the definition.

The LAMP Stack is a term that means a specific set of technologies that makes a website function. LAMP is an acronym that stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

When someone says they know the LAMP stack, that’s a pretty big fucken claim. This means they’re professing to know how operating systems work (Linux), how the web server works (Apache), how databases work (MySQL) and how to program using PHP. Each of these are their own full discipline. Most of these people are blowing smoke up your ass. That, or they’ve been in the game long enough to be cranky, know their shit, and make a website like this fucken one.
