The LAMP abbreviation represents the set of the tools used primarily for running websites. The initial letters of these tools – Linux (Operating system), Apache(web http server). MySQL (relational SQL database), PHP (application programming and scripting language) make up the LAMP abbreviation. The database can be substituted by some other alternative. However in the case of the TKL LAMP stack image, it is exactly MySQL.
This image is suitable primarily for the (multi)hosting of websites, but there are also other ways of utilization. The TurnKey Linux LAMP Stack image contains all the components mentioned in the description of the TKL core version and on top of that:
