Why use the Bitnami WAMP Stack?
Bitnami makes it easy to run WAMP locally. The Bitnami WAMP Stack is:
We track every release of WAMP and update our stack shortly after it's released.
If serious security issues are discovered, we provide new versions of WAMP as soon as possible, often within hours of the availability of a fix.
With Bitnami, you get the same software stack and configuration regardless of where you are deploying WAMP or other Bitnami Applications. This makes it easy to migrate between different platforms.
With the Bitnami WAMP Stack compiling, configuring and all of its dependencies are taken care of, so it works out-of-the-box.

I normaly use the Wordpress stack, but I need SQLite. Works like a charm.
BUT : It says in the description that the WAMP stack contains sqlite.
Where is it. I can't find it and PHPinfo doesn't see it either.
After messing around trying to get the components I had to play nice with each other, and many trips wampserver.com, StackExchange and services.msc, I gave up trying to save HD space and tried this. It worked the first time out of the box and I was able to move forward on my proj.
Ok... ImageMagick is not installed! Yes there is imagemagick folder in bitnami folder but there is no extension in php ext folder and no imagemagick module in php.ini... So... Stop bullshitting ppl. Wasted some time of my life.
So I'll share my knowledge:
- Don't use any stacks, get your own apache for windows, install 32 bit apache and php... +
To make imagemagick working on windows you need to install php in c:\, install imagemagick in c:\, get correct dll (ts or nts) for your php version and add line to php.ini re imagemagick module + there is no working imagemagick for 64 bit stack.
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.
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.
