Usually, LAMP stands for "Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP" and signifies the standard software stack that most sites I develop are based upon. Sometimes, the "P" can stand for other scripting languages such as Python or Perl. Further, there are other variations like MAMP (deployed on Mac OS X operating system instead of Linux), or LAPP (the MySQL database engine is replaced with PostgreSQL), etc.
