Many people know from their own experience that it's not easy to install an Apache web server and it gets harder if you want to add MySQL, PHP, and Perl.

The goal of XAMPP Portable is to build an easy to install distribution for developers to get into the world of Apache. To make it convenient for developers, the tool is configured with all features turned on.

In the case of commercial use please take a look at the product licenses, from the app point of view commercial use is also free. There are currently distributions for Windows, Linux, and macOS. The most popular PHP dev package and completely free of charge.
