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, MySQL, and PHP/Python/Perl and is considered by many the platform of choice for development and deployment of high performance web applications which require a solid and reliable foundation.

Stable version: 13.0 (changelog)

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.
  • PHP development helpers
    • phpsh: interactive shell
    • php5-xdebug: debugging and profiling
    • php-pear: php extension and application repository
    • php5-cli: command-line interpreter
  • XCache - PHP opcode caching acceleration.
  • PHPMyAdmin administration frontend for MySQL (listening on port 12322 - uses SSL).
  • 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.
