    Hi All

    I have Apache 2.2 installed on my Windows 7 PC. Now I'm doing a vid course on php-mysql, and they
    recommended installing WAMP which has php, apache and mysql all in one. Now I installed it. Can I have both Apache and WAMP installed together, or should I remove apache?

    Thanks

    WAMP is the "Software Containter" which holds list of software. Even you can install XAMPP as an alternate to WAMP(I have that). If you have Apache installed along, then the WAMP installation has overridden it, or installed in a different place. The problem of this is, your computer will face problems when finding the Server. So the answer is, remove apache if it is bothering(because WAMP) has that, or keep it if it is not causing matters. But I recommend removing apache because no use of keeping two installations of the same software.
