Support » Localhost Installs » WAMP, XAMPP or BitNami .. get confused !!

  • Hi,

    I am planning to install WordPress in my computer locally, and I have three options WAMP, XAMPP, and BitNami.

    My question: I narrowed the selection to XAMPP and BitNami, which one I should use to install my WordPress environment ?

    Thank you for the correct and the quick answer.

  • There is no correct answer. You can use either.

    WAMP has much easier UI than XAMPP. I prefer WAMP. Never tried Bitnami.

    I don’t use either. I prefer EasyPHP but I’ve heard some good things about InstantWP.

    hi esmi,

    jus googled InstantWP. Instantly dwnloaded. n its awsome.


    As much as I know:

    Updated one without hassle would be XAMPP and mostly preferred by users but it consumes more memory than wamp. For that case, during installation be sure to uncheck โ€˜include Apache and mysql in serviceโ€™.

    Fast and easy one would be WAMP but it only runs on Windows.

    EasyPHP I never like to use because lots of hassle and few bugs.

    ..don’t know much about Bitnami..

    @rohan K: Yep – that’s pretty much what I’ve heard from others. ๐Ÿ™‚

    XAMPP is much better,
    I am using it and its very fast and relay able !!

    I am having another problem, I want to have all of my sites data on my local machine!!

    Any idea how can have an updated copy all the time ???

    @romancenyou: Will you please start posting your own topics!

    OK and sorry once again, I did not know the rules ๐Ÿ™
    I will be care full in future ๐Ÿ™‚
