It covers all major known web bugs, including all risks from the OWASP Top 10 project.  bWAPP is for web application security-testing and educational purposes only.

Have fun with this free and open source project!
bWAPP is a PHP application that uses a MySQL database. It can be hosted on Linux/Windows with Apache/IIS and MySQL. It can also be installed with WAMP or XAMPP. Another possibility is to download the bee-box, a custom Linux VM pre-installed with bWAPP.

First of all you have need to install a local server over system that may be XAMPP, WAMP or LAMP. These servers are totally free of cost you can freely download from the internet. Mostly XAMPP is used because it has more functionalities than others on the other hand WAMP is also a simple platform for PHP while, LAMP is used over the Linux distributions. After downloading any one of them you have need to install that first after that you'll be able to configure bWAPP over your system.

Why we use the software application for configuring this bWAPP? As we know PHP is a server side language and there must be a server to read the PHP script. Without using any server we can't do programming with PHP. If you have a little piece of code of PHP you must install a server in your system for running that PHP script.
