WordPress Developer Switches to LEMP
The LAMP stack (open source development environment using Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) has always been incredibly popular among developers, but in the past few years, that has started to change. What people are starting to use instead is called a LEMP stack, which replaces the Apache web server with a Russian little-engine-that-could competitor, Nginx (pronounced “Engine X” – hence the E in LEMP). Keep in mind that the code for Nginx is free, open-source, and is identified by the official site as both NGINX and nginx.
