I'm looking for an easy way to get on Win10 webserver based on apache (or familiar), php, mysql, and ssl (all 3 must have). Everything I found on google has no info how to do it... only how to change something or how to provide new things.

  • Windows IoT is supposed to be used a thin client. The PHP, MySQL and SSL should live on a real server. There are ways to do what you want but not using the stuff you want to use.

Everything you assume from traditional Windows systems is irrelevant in IoT Core. Wintel binaries like apache.exe , php.exe and mysql.exe are positively unwelcome and simply won't work.

Windows 10 IoT core is best regarded as vehicle to run one (1) full-screen Universal Windows Platform App all the time - there is no Desktop , no explorer.exe and definetely not multiple Windows - by design. Also there is no regard to backwards compability - by design. 90 % of the worlds Windows software (including WAMPP and relatives) doesn't work on it - by design.

Raspbian can transform into a solid LAMP (Linux , Apache , MySQL , PHP) system with one apt-get invocation - by design.

  • I can't use Raspbian (don't ask why...). I know Raspbian can become LAMP, because I've done it. But right now I need to have the same on Win10 IoT.

    Buy an Intel Compute Stick or a real PC. You will get nowhere with Win10IoTCore + Raspberry Pi if you want (X)AMP.
