    Or you can install one by one. First install MySQL then PHP, then apache

    Vagrant is a good alternative, it uses virtual machines. To create the configuration files for the server use puphpet.com.

    We will look at these different alternatives. WampServer. WampServer is also another tool used for creating web applications and PHP development. EasyPHP. EasyPHP is one of the best contenders to Xampp.

    The best alternative of xampp is EasyPHP. This is one of the amazing tools if you want to focus only on the coding part and remain rest of configuration problems. The web developer can easily work with the applications like Joomla, Drupal and WordPress with it.

    the best alternative is to clear space on your hard drive and dual boot with linux. Its totally free to use something like lubuntu or xubuntu.

    Sorry but your programming knowledge will not be up to par until you can setup a server and you will find if you deal with other techs like node, ruby python etc that its more streamlined to develop on linux.

    I use to develop non MS stacks on windows but always ran into issues.

    P.S. If your php development includes laravel - laragon is pretty sweet on windows or linux and installs php, mysql etc for general php development as well

    I've been using MAMP Pro on Mac. If you're on Windows, you could try downloading the Public Release V4 MAMP Pro for Windows. Check it out: https://www.mamp.info/en/public-beta...pro-4-win.html

    Uniform server is the best one to opt.It is very light weight and portable server
    for running a web server under the Windows OS.It has the latest versions of Apache2, Perl5, PHP5, MySQL5, phpMyAdmin and more.

    That depends on what you're exactly looking for. If your main goal is PHP development I'd not look for an alternative, just accompany that with PHPStorm.

    If you want to do web development , you don't relay need XAMPP and instead you can pick single components of your liking, there are other webservers aside of Apache, but you also might simply use a Linux for your development and all the components are already there.

    The LAMP stack was a term before XAMPP came along and is still the original.

    Here are some other alternatives:
    AMPPS
    EasyPHP
    WampServer
    MAMP
    Zend Server

    XAMPP itself is the best when it comes to easy set up. But i would take xampp as an alternative to laragon. Laragon was made to make development environment easy, especially for laravel (which is always awesome).
