The reason they call it a stack is because each level derives off it’s base layer. Your Operating system, Linux, is the base layer. Then Apache, your web daemon sits on top of your OS. Then your database stores all the information served by your web daemon, and PHP (or any P* scripting language) is used to drive and display all the data, and allow for user interaction.

Apache HTTP Server

Apache HTTP ServerThe Apache HTTP Server, typically called simply “Apache”, is a free and open-source cross-platform web server. Apache is the most widely used web server. As of March 2018, the Apache web server was estimated to serve 43% of all active websites and 37% of the top million websites.

The Apache web server supports virtual hosting. This allows one Apache installation to serve many different Web sites.

Apache uses compiled modules to extend the core functionality. These can range from authentication schemes, popular compression methods, to supporting server-side programming languages such as Perl, Python, Tcl and PHP.

Instead of implementing a single architecture, Apache provides a variety of MultiProcessing Modules (MPMs), which allow it to run in either a process-based mode, a hybrid (process and thread) mode, or an event-hybrid mode, in order to better match the demands of each particular infrastructure.
