XAMPP

XAMPP is a software bundle created by www.apachefriends.org which includes everything you need to install Apache/MySQL/PHP/Perl in one go. It is available for Windows, Linux and Solaris. Particularly on a Windows machine, this is definitely the fastest way to get up and running with these tools, as someone else has done the integration and DEFAULT configuration work for you.
The philosophy behind XAMPP is to build an easy to install distribution for developers to get into the world of Apache, PHP and MySQL. To make it convenient for developers XAMPP is configured with all features turned on. The default configuration is not good from a security point of view and it is not secure enough for a production environment. Since v0.9.5 you can make your XAMPP installation securer by calling "security" from XAMPP admin web interface, from which you can tighten up the loose ends.
