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.

AMPPS used to let you install apps like MediaWiki and so much more entirely for free, but it seems they decided to hold apps like that hostage behind a yearly paywall with their latest releases. If anyone from AMPPS reads this, from the bottom of my heart, screw you AND your new business model.
