LEMP stack meaning

What is the meaning of LEMP stack?

It is an acronym that stands for:

  • Linux
  • Nginx
  • MySQL
  • PHP

And yes it’s a little funny that the “E” stands for Nginx, but it was trying to be similar to the LAMP stack acronym so they chose “E” to make it sound nice. The “Eeee” sound is from Engine, or Nginx. However some people have begun typing “LNMP stack” instead so that it’s more accurate, however this word can’t really be pronounced in the English language.
