Notes

The philosophy behind XAMPP is to build an easy to install distribution for developers to get into the world of Apache. To make it convenient for developers XAMPP is configured with all features turned on.

The default configuration is not good from a securtiy point of view and it's not secure enough for a production environment - please don't use XAMPP in such environment.

Pros
  • All-in-one app
  • Free
  • Good online community
Cons
  • Not for beginners
  • Help is just ok

Many people know from their own experience that it's not easy to install an Apache web server and it gets harder if you want to add MySQL, PHP and Perl. XAMPP is an easy to install Apache distribution containing MySQL, PHP and Perl. XAMPP is really very easy to install and to use - just download, extract and start.

The distribution for Windows 98, NT, 2000 and XP. This version contains: Apache, MySQL, PHP + PEAR, Perl, mod_php, mod_perl, mod_ssl, OpenSSL, phpMyAdmin, Webalizer, Mercury Mail Transport System for Win32 and NetWare Systems v3.32, JpGraph, FileZilla FTP Server, mcrypt, eAccelerator, SQLite, and WEB-DAV + mod_auth_mysql.

"XAMPP is a go-to platform for web server testing. Easy, reliable, painfree."

I love xampp. The first machine I installed it on it was difficult and took some time. The procedure was confusing. The next time I installed it (version 1.7.7) it couldn't have been easier. Getting a new computer soon and looking forward to using the latest xampp. I also use php, mysql and perl.

Pros
  • Reliability
  • Ease of use
Cons
  • Maybe an easy way to keep phpMyadmin current
