"Fantastic--one-click and you have a server running"

February 01, 2013  |  By Krontor

 |  Version: WampServer 2.2e

Pros

The install couldn't be easier. Right click the tray icon to access everything. It's also useful as a lan server for using wordpress and all its community features in an office, for example.

If you had a windows server installed, you'll need to uninstall it and all it's extra pieces. I had to disable my windows firewall to make the server accessible over the lan, but I didn't want to spend a lot of time to find the right firewall setting and security wasn't an issue on our secure lan.

Wordpress works great, you just need to install a mysql database first, then you can use automatic install.

The address in the network is just the ip of the machine where wampserver is installed, like 192.168.0.5 which will go to the www directory. Sub directories are addressed normally, like 192.168.0.5/wordpress

Wampserver comes with phpmyadmin, but I use adminer myself--simply drop the adminer file into the www directory.

Wordpress works normally with automatic updates, plugins, etc.

Cons

Haven't found any.

"Great, but not with Joomla"

April 19, 2011  |  By billbois

 |  Version: WampServer 2.0i

Pros

Easy to set up, easy to run, easy to maintain

Cons

Joomla doesn't like it. If you need to run Joomla on your local machine, get xampp instead.

"I recommend xmampp instead"

July 26, 2009  |  By Web Webster

 |  Version: WampServer 2.0g

Pros

theoretically eliminates (or drastically reduces) php/mysql/apache configuration challenges

Cons

didn't work for me

Summary

I couldn't get wamp to come up on my system so rather than trouble-shoot it I uninstalled it and tried xampp http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html instead. xampp worked great for me right out of the chute on a wide variety of platforms (2000 server, XP, Vista, even Windows 7 release candidate). xampp is easy to use. I had my most complicated web site (including php and mysql) up and running on my 2000 server with minimal effort and little frustration. I love the firezilla FTP server too - it makes managing my test - user acceptance - production migrations a piece of cake. so - wamp is probably OK, I probably COULD have made it work - but xampp is simply better.

Updated on Jul 26, 2009

typo in subject line - should be XAMPP
