WAMP stands for “Windows Apache MySQL, and PHP” and is an easy way to install a web server on your local Windows machine. MAMP is the Macintosh version of this, and LAMP is the Linux version. These packages make it very easy to set up a local server on your hard drive and do testing in an Apache server environment without putting the site live for customers. in fact, at any given time I may have up to three servers running on my local network in LAMP, MAMP, and WAMP configurations. do you use a WAMP or MAMP server for testing?
