Alternatives to XAMPP
« on: November 20, 2010, 09:05:54 AM »
I work quite a few years with XAMPP, and I always discovered some problems. Apache doesn't start because it's busy, PHP version is long time outdated, etc.

A few months ago I discovered EasyPHP http://www.easyphp.org/ and the more I work with it, the more I like it. Smaller, quicker, more stable, latest PHP versions.
It can be used for Portable versions, too. Just give it a try, if you aren't that satisfied with XAMPP.

For all the Mac OS People out there: MAMP works absolutely fine.

Hi,

i am using Linux on a PC. But in different forums i read very often, that Mac-users had problems with XAMPP an that MAMP worked fine for them.

Hi,

you only have to activate mod_rewrite:
