What is a stack?

A web service stack or LAMP stack is a bundle of software containing all the components required to create, manage and maintain dynamic websites or web applications. Software components include an operating system, web server, database and programming language. The LAMP acronym refers to the popular combination of Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP, but this is just one of the many possible configurations.
