XAMPP (stands for Cross-Platform (X), Apache (A), MariaDB (M), PHP (P) and Perl (P)) is very easy to install Apache Distribution for Linux, Solaris, Windows, and Mac OS X. The package includes the Apache web server, MySQL, PHP, Perl, an FTP server and phpMyAdmin. It is a simple, lightweight Apache distribution that makes it extremely easy for developers to create a local web server for testing and deployment purposes. Everything needed to set up a web server – server application (Apache), database (MariaDB), and scripting language (PHP) – is included in an extractable file. It is also cross-platform, which means it works equally well on Linux, Mac, and Windows. Since most actual web server deployments use the same components as XAMPP, it makes transitioning from a local test server to a live server.
