MAMP & WAMP

MAMP stands for Macintosh, Apache, MySQL and PHP. MAMP is an application that you can install on your Max that will give you the ability to have access to a local PHP server or a MySQL server. MAMP is most useful for running the software WordPress on your own machine. The software comes free of charge and is very easily installed allowing you to install your own server onto your computer. MAMP can be very easily uninstalled as well as when you want it removed you only need to delete the MAMP folder and everything returns to how it was before you installed the software meaning nothing of your core machine is affected.

WAMP is the same as MAMP but it is the application that is designed for Windows OS instead of Macintosh. It stands for Windows, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

A combination of WordPress and MAMP will allow you to create web applications with ease and control. Both WordPress and MAMP are easy to install very quickly and you will be able to customise your website from your own home computer very quickly.
