basic explanation of LAMP for dummies
so far i believe it's like this:
the web browser immediately renders the html stuff and displays you something.
Well the php scripts reside on the webserver and they usually have within them mysql scripts. Mysql is the language used by the database, and the php scripts call the mysql queries, which gets stuff from the database.
Note that the user (the person sitting in front of the computer) will never see the php scripts. Because php resides on the server.
(stuff that has to do with the web browser is front end, and stuff that has to do with the webserver is backend)
and ruby on rails (RoR) is just a whole other beast that replaces LAMP. i think...
correct me where i'm wrong because i'm just learning this stuff so it's new to me as well.
