Understanding the difference between WAMP, LAMP, MAMP and XAMPP

Wamp, Lamp, Mamp and Xampp are local servers that are used while developing PHP sites. Using these servers, programmers can test a website locally before they upload it to the main server. This ensures that the new website doesn’t have any bugs or errors.
