What is the purpose of a wamp server?



Additional qn: Where(and how) exactly is the data stored when im using a wamp server on my computer?

In: Technology

Wamp servers are good for testing websites while building them it basically turns your computer into a web server the data is stored on your hard drive

Wamp will install in program files. Better implementations have a gui for configuration but apaches conf file is well documented.

If I recall correctly, your files would go in a folder of the wamp install, but I’m sure you can configure it to use a different folder.

Using wamp to serve pages to the internet is not considered safe though, it’s more used internally and for testing purposes.

To build an internet facing webserver, there’s prebuilt virtual machines out there with precise instructions to make them secure.

Have fun and stay safe 😉
