Can I run [X,M,W, L]AMP and Local at the same time?

I have a class of students who are working on php projects using XAMPP, MAMP or WAMP.
Now I want them to install Local to learn Wordpress.
One student came up to me and said he couldn’t start Apache on XAMPP, Is there a problem running XAMPP and Local at the same time?

Hi @jkohlin,

Local should run harmoniously with other local _AMP solutions.

The only thing that you need to watch out for is using the same local domain in both Local and another product like XAMPP.

great, thanks.

Hi @clay!

This is great news but how? Can you check out the question I ask here: Help! MAMP and Local

I have yet to sleep tonight! Must fix this! Thank you!
