Why use the Bitnami WAMP Stack?

Bitnami makes it easy to run WAMP Stack locally. The Bitnami WAMP Stack is:

  • Up-to-date

    We track every release of WAMP Stack and update our stack shortly after it's released.

  • Secure

    If serious security issues are discovered, we provide new versions of WAMP Stack as soon as possible, often within hours of the availability of a fix.

  • Consistent

    With Bitnami, you get the same software stack and configuration regardless of where you are deploying WAMP Stack or other Bitnami Applications. This makes it easy to migrate between different platforms.

With the Bitnami WAMP Stack stack compiling, configuring and all of its dependencies are taken care of, so it works out-of-the-box.

  1. Bitnami WAMP Stack 4

    Good Stack...but there is NO VARNISH

    by Lance Huston on

    The stack clearly states that Varnish is part of the package, there is even a wiki page on how to configure it (disabled by default) if it were only disabled than it would not be a problem...the problem is that it does not even exist. I have several instances of Magento and Varnish really is needed. I even tried 2 older WAMP versions...looks like its NEVER been there, sadly disappointed.

  2. Bitnami WAMP Stack 5

    0-Developing at the speed of install :)

    by William Crandell on

    As described and mentioned by others setup is extremely simple. The additional included scripts (Windows batch files) and shortcuts to them, made getting the system setup as a service as simple as could be hoped for. As a linux user (As opposed to Windows), this has helped increase the speed in which the system was up and running and internally accessible on an intranet.

    After setup was complete my custom application was easy to get working, though the mistake was thinking, just jump right in without reading any docs, because this project needs completed ASAP. After copying the php files, setting up the database, and inserting proper configurations for a custom application it was up and running in no time. Therefore it took a few days before realizing the mistake of not reading the included README.txt was discovered.

    Though everything worked as expected, the application was not modular to WAMP, where modularity could be easily achieved. Understanding how to do this was quickly address in the README.txt file. At this point , it should be obvious to start there, though sometimes as a developer, a desire to get back to work can be a strength though sometimes self defeating.

    Glad to have given the time to read the docs.

  3. Bitnami WAMP Stack 3


    by Carlos Gonzalez on

    Very easy to install and responsive but ImageMagick doesn't work in windows 7.

    It needed a Extension PHP and configuration PHP panel, like cpanel have.

    Sorry for my english.

    Bitnami WAMP Stack (only?)

    by Cubic Consult on

    I tried the other WAMP servers and of the 2 that I found that still are compatible with Windows XP [ Yes, some of us still prefer this OS! ;-) ] only Bitnami worked, and it worked seamlessly!

    I suspect that all Bitnami apps, and not only the WAMP product, are compatible with Windows XP (?).

    Great work ....!

    No Varnish

    by Marcin K on

    Description is not true. There is no varnish. I wanted to use varnish, both documentation, readme and even change-log are not correct.
