XAMPP and WAMP in the LAMP, what's the best?


Question

We have got loads of options for php + MySQL + Apache combo... Which is the best pack among these ?

Lets confine our ideas to WAMP vs XAMPP, is there a better option to go for?

I created an online programming contest web app called CodeFire on XAMPP, later I had to switch to WAMP, where none of the php scripts worked properly... what standard should I follow?

Accepted Answer

I like XAMPP, personally. I have an install running on a thumbdrive that I carry around that's pretty much my development environment for LAMP web dev on any machine I happen to be at (I'm mostly on Windows client machines).

Small, fully-functional, and stable - works really well for my needs.

I like WAMP the best, real simple interface and I can easily switch between different versions of PHP 5.26/4.44/4.3.9, MySQL 5/4, and Apache 2/1.3
