Can I use XAMPP for Window as a Web server?

Postby tun001757 » 06. May 2011 02:13

Hi All,

I am new to php and xampp. So far i have used xampp for doing some php testing in my localhost.Never used as a web sever before.
But now I have installed xampp in my office window server 2008 and wanted to host some application over there.
To make it accessible around the globe.

Since xampp is so easy to install, I prefer using it instead of install one by one (apache, phpmyadmin and php).

I read in one forum saying that xampp is not recommanded for using as a server, it is just a development tool.

Is it true?

Regards,

Tun

Very true indeed and please read the XAMPP for Windows web site and the linked readme file and of course the FAQ:
http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-windows.html
http://www.apachefriends.org/winxampp/readme_en.txt
http://www.apachefriends.org/en/faq-xampp-windows.html

Running XAMPP as a production server is not recommended, but search as there are more secure alternatives including, but not limited to, Zend Server (CE):
