XMAPP vs WAMP

WampServer  and XAMPP are both free and easy to install Apache-MySQL-PHP local servers.

The major difference is the operating system. WAMP runs on Windows only while XAMPP is multi-platform. In addition to what WAMP offers, XAMPP also includes MariaDB and Perl.

Xampp

  • XAMPP stands for X-OS, Apache, MySQL and PHP and Perl
  • It supports multiple operating systems including Windows, Mac, Linux
  • It is an open source project
  • It comes with additional features including support of PERL, MariaDB, Filezilla, Mercury Mail and some scripts
  • It supports SSL feature
  • You can add other services to XAMPP
  • XAMPP is easier to use
  • Its control panel is more user-friendly than WAMP

WampServer

  • WAMP stands for Windows, Apache, MySQL and PHP
  • It only runs on Windows
  • It is an open source project
  • Its setup configuration is easier than XAMPP
  • You cannot add other services to WAMP
  • It does not support Perl
  • It does not support SSL feature

  • you need Perl, Filezilla, Mercury Mail and other features support besides Apache, MySQL and PHP
