WAMP stands for “Windows, Apache, MySQL, and PHP,” whereas the first M in MAMP stands for Mac instead of Windows. They both refer to a complete solution for hosting dynamic web pages.
Both 127.0.0.1 and http://localhost are ways of referring to the local computer. When a WAMP or MAMP is properly configured, you can type either into a browser’s address bar to call up the default page on the local server.
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. An FTP program is used to transfer files back and forth between a client and a server.
It is necessary to FTP files to a remote server in order to update it, which can substantially increase development time if this action is carried out many times in a session.
Dedicated program editors are smart and can highlight problems in your code before you even run it.
