Wamp Server

Wamp Server is an Open Source web server stack, installing all the components you'll need for running a typical web server on Windows.  Wamp is an acronym for Windows Apache MySQL PHP.

For those unfamiliar, Apache is the Web Server, MySQL is the Database server and PHP is a popular and well supported programming language for coding websites and database access.  See the Wampserver website for further information.

Wamp Server is an excellent and easy to use system for quickly installing a web server on a home computer or any other system.  Because the components (aside from Windows) are open source, there is nothing to buy and you really can install this for free.  It's an excellent choice for quickly installing a testing and development webserver on any Windows computer.
