What web server and scripting technology should I use for my website? Other than the fact that it’s the most stable, most resourceful, and FREE, the LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL PHP) configuration is the only way to go for you online needs. Just look at the server market trends since ’95. Apache is the only one that’s growing. Almost 70% of the total server market. Products that grow do so for a reason.
If you are considering a new website or database, I cannot honestly think of a situation where LAMP would not be ideal for small, medium, even many large companies.
