I’m looking at different web server solutions which include XXAMP, LAMP, WAMP and MAMP. Which of these is the best and what are the strengths and weaknesses?
Ampps is one of the best ! google for ampps and click on the first link.
you gonna love it believe me !
i use xampp., and still happy with it's performance..
WAMP MAMP and XXAMP aren't generally used in production environments. If you want to set up a development server, use whatever OS you like. For actually running a live site, LAMP is the best and most widely used option.
Considering my personal experience , I would suggest XAMPP
Deciding between Lamp, Wamp and Mamp depends upon your operating system.
Lamp is for Linux operating system
Wamp is for windows operating system
Mamp is for Mac OS X operating system.
And about Xampp , it has too many additional features including support of perl, filezilla, mercury mail and some scripts. and is available for all major operating system including windows, mac, Linux.
If you are on windows and do not want perl and other additions of xampp then i recommend Wamp.
Similarly in mac and linux you can use lamp or mamp if you do not need those additional features or if you need an FTP client like filezilla and mercury mail then you can use XAMPP.
in terms of functionality.
All of them come with latest version of php, MySQL and apache.
all have phpmyadmin.
and all configures themselves automatically to work with each other.
nice explanation :)
