What is XAMPP? Downloads, apps, themes and addons

XAMPP is an open-source Apache distribution containing MySQL, Maria DB, PHP and Peri created by Apache Friends, which was co-founded by Kai Seidler and Kay Vogelgesang in 2002. XAMPP aims to make things convenient for developers while working with an Apache webserver.

It comes pre-configured with key features switched on and is also free-to-use for commercial projects under GNU General Public License. Though, it is important to note that only the compilation of XAMPP is free and users will have to check licenses of every other product (like MySQL) to get an overview of what’s allowed under the commercial scope.

XAMPP currently provides distributions for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. It is maintained by Beltran Rueda and Daniel Lopez Ridruejo, who also co-founded Bitnami.

XAMPP Downloads

As mentioned above, XAMPP is available for Windows, Linux and OS X. Below, we’ve mentioned the current versions available for download alongside its corresponding PHP versions, file size and system requirements.
