XAMPP (/ˈzæmp/) is a free and open source cross-platform web server solution stack package, consisting mainly of the Apache HTTP Server, MySQL database, and interpreters for scripts written in the PHP and Perl programming languages.


The program is released under the terms of the GNU General Public License and acts as a free web server capable of serving dynamic pages.

XAMPP is available for Microsoft Windows, Linux, Solaris, and Mac OS X, and is mainly used for web development projects. This software is useful while you are creating dynamic webpages using programming languages like PHP, JSP, Servlets.


// Etymology //

XAMPP's name is an acronym for:

    X (to be read as "cross", meaning cross-platform)
    Apache HTTP Server
    FTP server

// Usage //

Officially, XAMPP's designers intended it for use only as a development tool, to allow website designers and programmers to test their work on their own computers without any access to the Internet. To make this as easy as possible, many important security features are disabled by default. In practice, however, XAMPP is sometimes used to actually serve web pages on the World Wide Web[citation needed]. A special tool is provided to password-protect the most important parts of the package.


XAMPP also provides support for creating and manipulating databases in MySQL and SQLite among others.

Once XAMPP is installed you can treat your localhost like a remote host by connecting using an FTP client. Using a program like FileZilla has many advantages when installing a content management system (CMS) like Joomla. You can also connect to localhost via FTP with your HTML editor.


The default FTP user "newuser", the default FTP password is "wampp".

The default MySQL user is "root" while there is no default MySQL password.
