What is WAMP?


WAMP5 installs automatically Apache 1.3.31 ,PHP5, MySQL database ,PHPmyadmin and SQLitemanager on your computer. It's principal aim is to allow you to easily discover the new version oh PHP : PHP5. WAMP5 comes with a service manager installed as a tray icon. It allows you to manage WAMP5 and access all services.

When you install WAMP5, all the files are copied in the directory you choose. Conf files are then modified to point to that directory. It also installs a "www" directory which will be your Document Root.


At the end of the installation, WAMP5 will automatically install Apache and MySQL as services :


- service' wampapache' : apache service
- service 'wampmysql' : mysql service


WAMP5's installation is compact. This means that all files are copied to WAMP5's directory. Only the MySQL conf file (usually my.ini) is copied to the Windows directory but as "mywamp.ini" to avoid conflicts with other installs.


Kromagnon used it on here once. It worked very well!

Images are suppose to be taken as a base image. For instance, once you install your OS and install all the software you need/want then you take an image. Not after you have 50 gigs of MP3s and Videos :)


I always backup those :) but if make an image of my HD.. the OS will be on the image right? thats waste of space!!

Sorry I meat that if I install My OS and programs and make backup ( HD image ) the OS will be backuped too right? so that would be 2.5Gb wasted on the image! because when you format you will have to re-install the OS from the CD and then replace the files from the Image right? so the OS backuped on the image will be a waste of space right?

I think some of the other guys thought it was a backup tool though, not knowing the difference between an image and backup :)

I'm fixing to use this to image my desktop at work! I'll let you guys know how it works.

The backup portion worked great on my desktop. I didn't need to restore so I can't verify how it worked. Thank you for the tool! I'm about to use it on my laptop right now.
