LAMP Stack on CentOS Streams 8

LAMP, an acronym for Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP, represents a well-established combination of software components ideally suited for delivering high-performance web applications. Each constituent brings vital functionalities to the stack:

Linux: Serving as the operating system, Linux is a free and open-source OS with a history dating back to the mid-1990s. It boasts a widespread global user base spanning various industries, primarily due to its reputation for offering greater flexibility and an extensive range of configuration options compared to some other operating systems.

Apache: As the web server, Apache processes requests and serves web assets through HTTP, making the application accessible to the public via a simple web URL. Developed and maintained by an open community, Apache stands as a mature and feature-rich server, powering a significant proportion of the websites currently present on the internet.

MySQL: Operating as the database, MySQL is an open-source relational database management system designed for the storage of application data. With MySQL, you can store all your information in a format that lends itself easily to querying through the SQL language. SQL proves to be an excellent choice, especially when dealing with well-structured business domains, enabling the translation of this structure into the backend. MySQL is well-suited for running even large and intricate websites.

PHP: Serving as the programming language, PHP is an open-source scripting language that collaborates with Apache to facilitate the creation of dynamic web pages. HTML alone cannot perform dynamic processes like data retrieval from a database. To introduce this type of functionality, you simply embed PHP code into the sections of a web page where dynamic behavior is desired.
