WAMP : Windows - Apache - MySQL - PHP
I have been using phptriad 2.2.1 on Windows for a very long time. It just made my work so easy. The combination of PHP, MySQL and Apache is extremely powerful when you need to quickly develop web pages.
Unfortunately, there were no newer versions of the triad available on the internet, and therefore I was not able to work with PHP5. As I searched for alternative solutions, I came across WAMP Server.
The WAMP Server looks a compact solution. The features (upgrade, opening up localhost, PHPMyAdmin) available in the System Tray menu make your life lot easier. For people who used the 'htdocs' folder to copy your PHP scripts, you must create a folder in the 'www' directory and paste your code in there.
