Meet AMPPS - a good alternative for XAMPP and WAMP  

For those who is looking for a good alternative for XAMMP or WAMP web server stacks. There is a very good option called AMPPS!

The listed number of provided features is impressive. Unlike the other solutions Ampps comes with over 300 PHP web applications, over 1000 PHP classes and libraries including Joomla!, WordPress, Magento, Dolphin and more. 

Very easy to install and manage services with the administration panel. You can easily switch PHP versions with only one-click action.

One thing to notice though... Despite the fact that there are several versions of PHP included, you cannot switch MySQL version which, to be honest, I don't find too critical.

Server configuration is also very straightforward using the web panel. If you mess up the configuration, you can reset it to default state which might be useful sometimes. :)

Also it is very easy to update! The app has built-in updater which makes life way easier when it comes to update Ampps.

Ammps is a really nice app for web developers! Gives a lot of features, easy to configure, easy to update. Switched to it a while ago and don't want to go back to Wamp or Xammp.
