XAMPP is a free and open source cross-platform web server solution stack package developed by Apache Friends, consisting mainly of the Apache HTTP Server, MariaDB database and interpreters for scripts written in the PHP and Perl programming languages.

Before trying XAMPP, the only AMP stack packages for Windows I had tried were EasyPHP and WampServer. I hadn't tried XAMPP before because I hadn't realized it included Xdebug, but since WampServer is so ugly and I had heard a lot about XAMPP, I gave XAMPP a try. It didn't cross my mind to verify that a well-known piece of free software marketing itself as stable had an issue tracking system.

Yet, after hitting a few bugs, I realized that XAMPP has been without an issue tracker for years! No wonder why creating a MySQL identity fails with XAMPP…

No need to specify I won't be contributing to XAMPP before that's solved. If I need to reinstall an AMP stack on Windows again, I'll retry EasyPHP.
