Is LAMP strictly for development purposes? [closed]

So basically, is LAMP strictly for development purposes or is it fine for production websites as well? I ask this because I have recently switched to Ubuntu from Windows and if LAMP is anything like WANP, it is more aimed towards development than production (live) websites.

Does the same apply for LAMP? I wish to run a small website on Ubuntu and I'm wondering if LAMP is secure enough.

LAMP is definitely production ready, of course with any IP accessible service(s) you have to follow Security Best Practices.

Secure LAMP server for production use


  • hide all version numbers and debug/informations pages
  • create a mysql user for each application with hardened passwords
  • use regular user accounts (using sudo if needing root permissions)
  • use a firewall (iptables) and open specific ports
  • do not load modules you don't explicitly need
  • apply latest patches/keep packages up to date
