Hello all. Today i will discuss about the difference between wamp, lamp and xampp. All these three are used for serving php websites and acts as the local server so that you can see your working website without uploading it first.

Lets first discuss about wamp.

wamp

wamp

wamp stands for windows, apache, mysql, php.

The best advantage of using wamp is that it is easy to setup configuration in wamp. But when i started using wamp, some times i faced problems while running php code , may be it was my coding problem but what else. Mostly people talk that wamp is not good for beginner but i say that wamp is very easy to use and it is best for both beginner and advanced users.

Now lets discuss about xampp.

xampp

xampp

xampp stands for x-os, apache, mysql, php , perl. x-os means it can be used for any operating system. xampp is easy to use than wamp. Its cpanel is very nice and good for beginner and its start, pause and stop button work very nicely by functionality. You can add other services to xampp also. I personally use xampp for my development.

Last thing is lamp. Lets discuss what is lamp.

lamp

lamp

lamp stands for linux, apache, mysql, php. Its functionality is same as wamp and xampp. I want to tell you one thing that the main functionality of all these three(wamp, xampp, lamp) are same i.e compile and run the php code, manage databases and other stuff. All these softwares give us ease in our development so that the complexity of handling all the services(databases handling, code manipulation) becomes easy for us.

Its time for me to end this topic so tc and have a good time. Bye…
