How to Install and Setup a WAMPServer on Windows 10
Hello guys, in this short video tutorial we are going to show you how you can install and set WAMPServer up on your local Windows 10 Computer.
As all of you may know that already the WAMPServer is software stack for Microsoft Windows OS which was created by Romain Bourdon and consisting of the MySQL DataBase, Open SSL, Apache Web Server and PHP programming language.
A local web server is a very useful tool. It is also needed by those who develop Web applications, and those who learn to work with a variety of scripts, engines, and those who are testing for Web penetration. There are various popular “all-in-one” assemblies that include Apache, PHP, MySQL and other components. You can use them.
But an independent server installation has a number of advantages:
- The ability to use the newest components, the latest versions of Apache, PHP, MySQL, phpMyAdmin;
- You can independently update these components on the day of release of new versions – do not wait until the authors of large packages do this;
- The lack of superfluous, redundant components – you establish only what you will need;
We know that there is a huge amount of the local web servers that you could possibly install on your local machine, for instance, such as:
- Open Server
- Uniform server
- Xampp USB Lite
But we decided to stop on WAMPServer as it’s more fits for our testing environment and it’s easy to work with.
Like XAMPP, this assembly is widely known in the west. Perhaps the reason is the support of a large number of languages, the ability to install any version of Apache, MySQL and PHP as an add-on and an attractive home page, which can not be said about the management program itself.
