the complete, portable server

XAMPP is an integrated server package of Apache, mySQL, PHP and Perl (the AMPP in XAMPP) that all run from a removable drive. Everything is pre-configured and ready to go just by unzipping or installing it.

Menu Integration: XAMPP isn't in Format, but it easily integrates with the Suite by using the XAMPP Launcher 1.6 and installing XAMPP in the root directory of your portable device or the appropriate subdirectory within XAMPP launcher. You can open the zip/7z archive of the portable version with 7-Zip Portable.

XAMPP ScreenshotXAMPP is a complete web, database and FTP server package for Windows that's ready to go in minutes and completely portable. The full XAMPP package includes:

  • Apache
  • MySQL
  • PHP + PEAR
  • MiniPerl
  • OpenSSL
  • phpMyAdmin
  • XAMPP Control Panel
  • Webalizer
  • Mercury Mail Transport System
  • FileZilla FTP Server
  • SQLite
  • Zend Optimizer
  • XAMPP Security
  • Tomcat

XAMPP Lite leaves off the additional packages and sticks to Apache, mySQL, phpMyAdmin, SQLite and related packages resulting in an installation that's significantly smaller. There are no upgrade packages for XAMPP Lite like there are for XAMPP, though.

Add-Ons: You can also add in Perl or Tomcat with the XAMPP Add-Ons.
