The Softaculous AMPPS library already contains popular applications, including: WordPress, b2evolution, StatusNet, Drupal, Joomla, Concrete5, phpBB, MyBB, SMF, bbPress, Coppermine, Gallery, Mediawiki, DokuWiki, TikiWiki, Elgg, Dolphin, OpenX, SquirrelMail, LimeSurvey, Piwik, Mantis, SugarCRM, WHMCS, PrestaShop, Magento, CraftySyntax, osTicket, Moodle, Claroline, etc.

“The MAC version has two PHP binaries – 5.3.8 and 5.2.17 alongwith the latest Apache and MySQL software. None of our competitors offer this and AMPPS is also having 235 Apps that can be installed by the click of a button,” said Jigar Dhulla, developer of AMPPS.
Softaculous apps are also available in the form of Virtual Appliances. The Virtual Appliances (called Webuzo) contain all the necessary server software required to power the various Apps.
