Understanding Apache and website configurations

Before creating a Wordpress on your computer, let’s see the architecture of files and directories in a LAMP stack – the most important ones and their functions.

What is a LAMP stack?

Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP

This is what is behind the acronym LAMP. It means this is a complete environment for computers/servers based on a Linux OS. This environment, also named “stack”, is used to create a web server environment running under Linux OS, with Apache (more details below), PHP for the programmation language, and MySQL for the database(s).

Creating a complete backup of your website in SSH

Export your MySQL database

If you have installed your website I presume you have all the information of your database stored somewhere (database name, database user and password). If not, there is a file that should store these information and you have to find it! (Remember the way to find a file that contains a specific string with SSH commands). If you are using WordPress this file is called “wp-config.php” and it is located at the root of your website files. If you are using Siberian CMS, this file is called “app.ini” and it is stored in app/configs/app.ini.
