The LEMP software stack is a group of software that can be used to serve dynamic web pages and web applications. This is an acronym that describes a Linux operating system, with an Nginx web server. The backend data is stored in the MySQL database and the dynamic processing is handled by PHP. All of the software used in this procedure will come from Ubuntu’s default package repositories. This means we can use the apt package management suite to complete the necessary installations.
I am a LEMP newbie, having done a bit of Ruby-on-Rails deployment to Cloud9 and Heroku. I am trying to help a small museum migrate from a custom website to one based on WordPress. I need to understand how to set up my local dev environment and then figure out how to push my dev efforts to DreamHost for deployment. Any comprehensive WordPress on LEMP docs would be very helpful.
