WinLAMP 4.0.0 installer
Yes, it is true there are now about
LAMP installers out there;
each one has slight variations on what and how it installs.
Back in the early days, before there were lots of installers,
we built an NSIS
installer to make our installations easier, and
decided to make it available here for you to download. From time to
time we upgrade it.
It is available as is: no warranties implied. It works on Win2K and above.
It will not work on Windows 9x. The installer's
license is the same as the Apache license.

control these services.

in a directory named Apache2. WinLAMP prefers to install this
in your root directory: C:/Apache2, but you can put it anywhere.

This installer uses version 5.0.22. Back in the old days, WinLAMP
installed and configured MySQL for you, but MySQL has finally
created their own installer.
So WinLAMP simply automatically starts the MySQL installer during
its installation. It also loads a browser window with tips on
