    Here is compliation for you

    The L
    There are lots of good guides available to help you out. This list may or may not help you depending on your distribution.

    Center for Internet Security Benchmarks - Distribution specific for the major flavors
    CentOS Hardening HowTo - Follows closely to the CIS RHEL5 guide, but is a much easier read
    NIST SP800-123 - Guide to General Server Security
    NSA Hardening Factsheets - Not as recently updated as CIS, but still mostly applicable
    Tiger - Live System Security Auditing Software

    The A
    Apache can be fun to secure. I find it easier to harden the OS and maintain usability than either Apache or PHP.

    Apache Server Hardening - This question on the IT Security sister site has lots of good information.
    Center for Internet Security Benchmarks - Again, Apache benchmarks.
    Apache Security Tips - Straight from the Apache project, it looks like it covers the basics
    DISA Hardening Checklist - Checklist from the DoD Information Assurance guys

    The M

    Center for Internet Security Benchmarks - Again, but for MySQL benchmarks
    OWASP MySQL Hardening
    General Security Guidelines - Basic checklist from the project devs

    The P
    This runs headlong into the whole idea of Secure Programming Practices, which is an entire discipline of its own. SANS and OWASP have a ridiculous amount of information on the subject, so I won't try to replicate it here. I will focus on the runtime configuration and let your developers worry about the rest. Sometimes the 'P' in LAMP refers to Perl, but usually PHP. I am assuming the latter.

    Hardening PHP - Some minor discussion, also on IT Security SE site.
    Hardened PHP Project - Main project that produces Suhosin, an attempt to patch the PHP application to project against certain types of attacks.
    Hardening PHP With Suhosin - A brief HowTo specifically for Suhosin
    Hardening PHP from php.ini - Short, but not bad discussion on some of the security related runtime options

    Thanks to Scott Pack from serverfaults for compilation
