Reviews of Bitnami WAMP Stack Write a Review →
I wanted a localhost setup on my Win8.1 laptop for the usual front-end development stuff, as well as the ability to install and play around with WordPress.
I've tried WampServer and XAMPP, as well as a couple of others, and none of them have ever been particularly stable for me whilst running Win7 with all updates on another laptop. They would run fine for a short while then completely stop working. It was getting beyond ridiculous.
So when I bought a new Win8.1 laptop in Feb 2014, I decided to try Bitnami, based on a recommendation, and I haven't looked back since. Super-easy installation, and it's been running without any problems at all. So I'm sticking with Bitnami, for sure!
Overall a very good stack to use for both development and production use.
Create a MariaDB based version.
For Apache install, allow the option to specify an IP address during installation.
Not as important, provide installer with cache options.
I've used several WAMP stacks and custom installations. I actually learned some things by using the BitNami WAMP stack. Great job.
Very easy to install and no configuration work is needed. I installed WampServer but Apache just couldn't start. So I downloaded this and it worked!
I love Bitnami stacks -- Rock-solid, simple installs for local development servers. Currently I'm using the WAMP stack, though I find I uninstall and reinstall different stacks fairly often as I move from project to project. I've also tried XXAMP and some others, but have not run into any that are as easy and no-fuss to install on my Windows 7 workstation as Bitnami.
Best thing and better for you, than Apple Pie & Ice Cream even more satisfying most times too.
If you're doing any web dev, even template development, bitnami sets the bar. This is fast, friendly, and heroically easy use.
Kudo's to the whole team.
