Install XAMPP and save a lot of time and effort and provides the software support for web frameworks like WordPress, Drupal, Moodle, or wikiMedia on any computer. if you want to setup a web development environment then installing XAMPP is the best option for you, suppose you want to run WordPress on your local machine so you would need PHP and MySQL running on your computer. it also give you good user interface sot handle these service like turning on/off Apache, MySQL etc. If you would want to install PHP, MySQL, Pearl manually in would cost you lots of time and effort but XAMPP does this all for you with single install.

To simplify installation, just hit ENTER when prompted. You will always be able to change settings by editing configuration files later on.
