LAMP is an open source Web development platform that uses Linux as the operating system, Apache as the Web server, MySQL as the relational database management system and PHP as the object-oriented scripting language. (Sometimes Perl or Python is used instead of PHP.)

Because the platform has four layers, LAMP is sometimes referred to as a LAMP stack. Stacks can be built on different operating systems.
