As mentioned briefly above, I work with LAMP based servers primarily when it comes to websites and cloud applications. For those that don’t have a background in this it stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP. I have been working with servers, routers, data center technology since 1998 when I interned at MCI/WorldComm. There I attained certifications like a CCNA and MCP at the time. This knowledge has evolved over time and has helped me with a base as i learned and evolved website design and development.
Today, I help companies provision servers depending on their needs, technology and budget. From dedicated servers, to VPS, Google Cloud Compute, Amazon AWS, to simple website hosting solutions. It all depends on what the client will need and can afford. I own my own dedicated server running CentOS/WHM/cPanel with a variety of Linux based software extensions that I use as a test development server. example… rather it be “test live” then desktop live via XAMPP.
