LAMP Stack - Web Stack (MySQL)

LAMP stack is a popular open source web platform commonly used to run dynamic web sites and servers. It includes Linux, Apache, MariaDB (MySQL drop-in replacement), and PHP/Python/Perl. It is considered by many, as the platform of choice for development and deployment of high performance web applications which require a solid and reliable foundation.

LAMP stack includes all the standard features in TurnKey Core, and on top of that:

  • SSL support out of the box.

  • PHP, Python and Perl support for Apache2 and MySQL (MariaDB).

  • PHP development helpers:

    • composer installed globally (/usr/local/bin/composer) from upstream.
    • turnkey-composer convenience wrapper script - runs composer as the 'www-data' (webserver) user account.
    • php-xdebug: debugging and profiling.
    • php-pear: php extension and application repository.
    • php-cli: command-line interpreter.
  • Adminer administration frontend for MySQL (MariaDB) (listening on port 12322 - uses SSL).

  • MariaDB - MySQL drop-in replacement.

  • MySQLTuner - Perl script to review and tweak a MySQL/MariaDB installation.

  • Postfix MTA (bound to localhost) to allow sending of email from web applications (e.g., password recovery).

  • Webmin modules for configuring Apache2, PHP, MySQL and Postfix.

A separate LAPP stack appliance features PostgreSQL instead of MySQL.
