    Apache is an http server. WAMP bundles Apache with MySQL and PHP in one program, hence the name:
    Windows
    Apache
    MySQL
    PHP

    Like Ronald said...the A in WAMP stands for "Apache" ...so the difference is that WAMP also includes MySQL and PHP (compatible the Windows OS you should already have).

    Apache would give you a web server, but without the ability to run PHP or MySQL out of the box, they'd have to be installed separately. Things like WAMP just bundle it together to make it easier to set up PHP/MySQL applications.

    I'm a big fan of XAMPP though, but I don't use the Perl stuff: XAMPP Installers and Downloads for Apache Friends
