Pick a different one.

I've used a number of WAMP and MAMP stacks over the years, and of all of them, AMPPS has been the MOST DIFFICULT to use and most time-consuming to troubleshoot. It would have been faster and easier to just install Apache and MySQL from scratch.

  • Really, REALLY difficult to have the htdocs anywhere other than where AMPPS wants it. (This would have been a deal-breaker if I knew it in advance, because it makes it useless for me on my work PC.)
  • This is the ONLY stack I've used that has trouble grabbing port 80 from the various Windows system processes that always seem to want to use it.
  • The Softaculous installer seems like a nice thing at first, but it insists on prefixing your database tables which makes it useless as a prototyping tool.

Overall recommendation: Pick something else.
