XAMPP PHP development environment

The XAMPP is a complete web development environment. On its install package, we can find Apache, MySQL, PHP, and Perl. This is everything that you will want to develop your solutions!

At this time, you can imagine the meaning of XAMPP, but the X before the AMPP has the meaning of cross or cross-platform. So, we have XAMMP: (X) Cross-platform, Apache, Maria DB, PHP, and Perl.

The goal of XAMPP is to build an easy-to-install distribution for developers to get into the world of Apache. XAMPP is a project of Apache Friends (Apache Friends is a non-profit project to promote the Apache web server).

Why we are working with this software? Let's find out:

  • Apache ( This has been the most popular web server on the Internet since April 1995 providing secure, efficient, and extensible HTTP services in sync with the current HTTP standards

  • MariaDB ( This strives to be the logical choice for database professionals looking for a robust, scalable, and reliable SQL server

  • PHP ( This is a popular general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited to web development; and, most importantly, it is the main language of Magento

  • Perl ( This is a highly capable, feature-rich programming language with over 27 years of development

So far so good, but how about doing some action?
