While AMP stands for Apache, MySQL and PHP, the first letter stands for the Operating System where you have these three packages installed. W in WAMP stands for Windows, L in LAMP stands for Linux, M in Mamp stands for Mac and XAMPP is a standalone installer which has all the three packages and is available for Windows, Linux and OSX.

All factors nitaish explained you.

XAMPP = X + Apache + MariaDB + PHP + Perl

If I am not wrong XAMPP only can be setup on a local PC and run as localhost.

Sorry but you are wrong about XAMPP, it's for all OS's X= Windows, Linux and MacOS OS X check https://www.apachefriends.org/index.html

They are used for PHP web server some of them for local use only some not.

WAMP, MAMP AND XAMPP can be localhost only (local web servers).
LAMP is only one who isn't for local use, but can if you use virtual machine.
LAMP and XAMPP (on linux server) can be production web servers.
Others can be used as servers if you know how to connect them with domain name.

WAMP stands for the Windows, Apache, MySQL and PHP. In case of LAMP, the operating system here is Linux and rest remains Apache, MySQL and php. XAMPP, is more of neutral to the OS. So they have build for both windows, Linux and mac. In case Mac the build is named as MAMP. Where the database choice is added with PostgreSQL or MySQL. You can choose either one of them during the download. That can give you some idea of these distributions. Not much difference other than type of OS it is running under.

LAMP stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP - which are the 4 main tools behind pretty much any website (although these days more and more are being written in python/ruby/other high level langs)
WAMP is the same as LAMP but running on Windows instead of linux, MAMP is on mac systems. IIRC people don't like to run these unless they have to because windows and macOS have much higher overhead (and so will run slower).

XAMPP is a portable system to install AMP+Perl on whatever system you want (although is mostly popular on windows, where it's the most difficult to setup a web server).

As a bonus, and so I'm not just repeating what everyone else has said, there's also a LEMP server, which is LAMP with the nginx web server instead of apache. Nginx is a much faster web server, with much more limited options, and is pronounced 'Engine X', hence the name LEMP.

The primary differentiator between Wamp, Lamp, Mamp and Xampp is the operating system (OS):

Lamp is for Linux.
Wamp is for Windows.
Mamp is for Mac OS X.
Xampp is for x-os, apache, mysql, php , perl.

LAMP-

1. The full form of Lamp is Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP as it combines all four

2. Lamp is an open-source platform

3. It works on the Linux OS

7. PHP is the object-oriented scripting language.



WAMP-

1. The full form of Wamp is Windows, Apache, MySQL and PHP as it combines all four

2. Wamp is an open-source platform

3. It works on the Windows OS

4. Uses the Apache web server

7. PHP is the object-oriented scripting language.
