In choosing the web server package and other packages, I kept getting told that using XAMPP is not a good idea mainly because it is not secure. I am wondering you agree with this and give your reasons why do you think so. XAMPP has been a great tool whenever I want to test a website function internally within a company project or when I use it in a classroom setting but I would like to know what is the drawbacks of using it solely for live website.
Also, can you give me an alternative to XAMPP that is secure, and well-suited for my needs. Your input are really appreciated.
