I'm trying to set up a WNMP/WEMP (Windows + Nginx + MariaDB/MySQL + PHP) testing server at work, but what may be a good package to get this configuration?

I don't want to mess with an individual install of each package, so I chose the WNMP project, is it a good choice? What other good WNMP servers are available out there?

So far I've found these tools:

  • WNMP. Disadvantage: I couldn't even find the default MariaDB password.
  • WEMP. Disadvantage: Last Update: 2013-04-11.
  • WTServer. It features a control panel for the daemons, as well as admin tools like Adminer on the same stack.
  • WPN-XM. I think I'll stick with this one.

Advantages of WPN-XM:

  1. Built-in admin panel to start, stop and restart services.
  2. MariaDB as the DBMS.
  3. Built-in server modules update tool.
  4. Adminer and PHPMyAdmin as database management tools.
  • In WNMP the Username and Password for MariaDB is:- user: root password: password See Notes on this page :- github.com/wnmp/wnmp
