I have been using a Bitnami WAMP stack to learn how to build a Wordpress site locally.

Thank you everyone involved in Bitnami for such an excellent, easy to use set of resources!!

I am trying to get my head around what does what and where it is.

Looking through the WAMP stack files, I cannot see mod_php listed anywhere. In the Apache folder I found the cgi-bin folder and a file called php-cgi.exe.

Does this mean the php is running through CGI? From what I have read, php_mod is faster.

Thanks for your help.

WAMP Stack is setup to use php_mod, you should have a line in apache config file similar to this:

LoadModule php5_module "C:/PROGRA~1/BITNAM~1/php/php5apache2_2.dll"

We also include php-cgi just in case the user wants to work with CGI files instead.
