LEMP Linux Nginx MySQL PHP Development Environment
Complete, fully-integrated and ready to run PHP, MySQL and Nginx development environment.
In addition, it bundles phpMyAdmin, SQLite, ImageMagick, FastCGI, Memcache, GD, CURL, PEAR, PECL and other components.
Also known as LEMP for Linux.
Why LEMP instead of LNMP?
We go with LEMP due to the pronunciation for Nginx: Engine-X (en-juhn-ecks).
Think of how in English, the article an is used instead of a for hour even though it begins with a consonant.
The importance is the sound of the first letter rather than its written representation.
Besides, LEMP is actually pronounceable and doesn’t sound like reciting the alphabet.
* Admin Package included: OpenVPN, SSH, SFTP, OS root access
An open source Unix-like operating system provides the base for the stack components.
Many distributions include package management systems that make installing the desired applications easy.
However, these repository versions will generally not be the most current.
Two of the most commonly used Linux distributions in LEMP stacks are Debian and Ubuntu.
Nginx is an open source reverse proxy server for HTTP, HTTPS, SMTP, POP3, and IMAP protocols.
It also functions as a load balancer, HTTP cache, and web server (origin server).
It has a strong focus on high concurrency, high performance and low memory usage.
The HTML5 Boilerplate project has sample server configuration files to improve performance and security.
MySQL is the second most widely used open source relational database management system.
A community-developed fork, MariaDB, is led by the original developers.
It aims to be a drop-in replacement.
PHP is a server-side scripting language designed for web development.
The scripting role can also be filled with Python or Perl.
Servers such as Gunicorn or uWSGI can be used in conjunction with Nginx to serve these applications.
