On wamp which is a popular combination of software for use as a web server. It makes use of  “Windows, Apache, MySQL, and PHP” hence the name wamp. We need this software to help us upload the drupal configuration files so that we can then start on the forum.

MAMP is used for the mac and we looked at this apporach also to find out the differences between the two products.  Below shows example of MAMP:
