What is a LAMP Stack?

My very first published article and it’s a good one. An outline of what makes up a typical LAMP stack and how knowing each layer applies to site owners and developers. Understanding the LAMP stack is critical for optimization. We all want our sites to perform there very best, but there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes down to server performance. A basic understanding of these software layers allows you to properly configure each directive to best perform for your unique site, user base, traffic and hardware configuration.

External Publications Page

I’ve added a new page to the cpguy.com site called External Publications. This page will serve as an index for any of my work that is published under another parties brand. This will be a great place to find my articles as they are published. I will also blog about each one independently so you can stay in the know. Please visit the External Publications page often to find any articles that you may have missed.

Introduction :: Getting Up & Running

Hello and welcome to my tech blog. This has been something I’ve wanted to do for a long time but time has never really been on my side for it. I guess I can start with an introduction. My name is Jason and I’ve been working in the IT Support field for more than a dozen years at this point. Allot of that time has been working with cPanel hosting servers. I’ve had my share of rag tag situations when things got hairy and I was able to persevere. This experience has been quite valuable in my current support roles. I’ve decided to switch my focus from hands-on support to technical writing as I believe I have lots to share to help those with less encompassing spheres of knowledge. I know, I will need to get this grammar thing under control and learn how to introduce more brevity into my rants. I would love to do this full time but for now, It is merely a side project, so content maybe short coming for a while.

I have a programmers mind and I am a avid shell scripting fan using Bash and Gawk to their fullest potentials. I will be including publication of the software scripts that I’ve put together over the years as time permits. I had my taste at this technical writing thing a few weeks ago when the company I am employed with offered me a writing assignment. I really enjoyed cutting my teeth on that topic. What is a LAMP Stack? I learned a lot just from that one article and I am hungry about creating more. I will be referencing my publications on other platforms as referral links so you can see them in their glory. So far as of this post, it’s a handful of publication. However, with some grit and time, I expect that number to keep rising.

Thanks for taking the time to read my little candid introduction here.
