XAMPP Installers and Downloads for Apache Friends

XAMPP Installers and Downloads for Apache Friends

Many people know from their own experience that it is not easy to install an Apache web server and it becomes more difficult if you want to add MariaDB, PHP and Perl. XAMPP’s goal is to build an easy-to-install distribution for developers to enter the Apache world. To make it convenient for developers, XAMPP is configured with all features enabled. In the case of commercial use, take a look at the product licenses, from XAMPP’s point of view, commercial use is also free. There are currently distributions for Windows, Linux and OS X.
