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 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.
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!
After installing WAMP Stack, i can't able to able to find and use Varnish. I need something like monitoring if it is enabled/disabled like php and mysql
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.
