XAMPP sever or WAMP Server ?
11 Aug 09
Well, WAMP works only on windows while XAMPP works on Windows, Linux(where it's called LAMP) and on Mac. WAMP gives you the option to change php and apache versions easily to match your development server(if any), but XAMPP has a lot more features like FTP, mercury mail and also has support for Perl(as an add-on). I tried WAMPP but it's very hard to switch between apache and php versions because you have to manually move all your configurations, I've also had a lot of problems and long latency time while switching versions and changing the menu. But what gives XAMPP the lead(for me at least) is it's killer feature of portability called "XAMPP Lite" and that's why I use it.

I think XAMPP is best ,offcourse as all said xampp is comfortable for all platform.And xampp has more feature when compared to wampp.Especially the user interface is very nice in xampp.Now xampp has many advance feature like tomcat .So xampp is always best.

I am php programmer and I am not a fan of WAMP. I am always going to use XAMPP. I have been using XAMPP from last 3.5+ years and seems to work fine for all my application and is very much easy to configure and operate. we have developed variety of project on XAMPP like dolphin (social networking),smarty (template engine), blogging (wordpress), e-commerce (magento) etc.

hi tony, in my point xampp is better.in xampp also we can create direct access to mysql and also we can put it online or offline mode.xampp is easier to stored programs in particular folder and get that file in browser compare to wampp.xampp can working in both windows and linux platforms

I use Xampp for development. It has Windows, Linux, Mac, and also lite version for download. The Control Panel is useful and convenient. There are so many different tools bunch with the full version so that you don't have to download them separately. I am in love with it. Happy myLotting:)
