About LAMP

One of the most common ways to deliver web applications is using the Free source “LAMP stack.” Debian 8 one of today’s most popular open-source web applications for WordPress and Drupal. These CRM’s run on LAMP. Installing L.A.M.P. (Linux Apache  MySQL and PHP ) is fun and easy.

If you’re looking to build a server and host your website or want to learn how it works, then this is the right place to install a very stable Debian 8
Distros with L.A.M.P for your word press site.

Be a Developer

Thinking about starting a Web Developer career, this is a must know. You need the disk space and computer ram to get started, at least 10 gigs for the Linux platform, and a minimum 8 Gig Ram.

Conquer Challenges

I have put in the copy and paste in the document; please note Linux and most blogs like these can be frustrating when you get an error. Just google the error and find the fix, not all computers are the same and many things can change with Debian as the upgrade the platform.
One problem you may get is with the links no longer working as websites change and stuff like that. Know this; it feels good when you find the error and fix it, which makes puts you at a level of a pro!
