The XAMPP open source package has been set up to be incredibly easy to install and to use. The goal of XAMPP is to build an easy to install distribution for developers to get into the world of Apache. To make it convenient for developers, XAMPP is configured with all features turned on. In the case of commercial use please take a look at the product licenses, from the XAMPP point of view commercial use is also free. There are currently distributions for Windows, Linux, and OS X.
XAMPP is a compilation of free software (comparable to a Linux distribution), it’s free of charge and it’s free to copy under the terms of the GNU General Public Licence. But it is only the compilation of XAMPP that is published under GPL. Please check every single licence of the contained products to get an overview of what is, and what isn’t, allowed. In the case of commercial use please take a look at the product licences (especially MySQL), from the XAMPP point of view commercial use is also free.
