Please I am a young programmer i need some help and clarification, I developed an Examination system with

cakephp and I want the students to write the exam offline using this application, I am using wampserver on

windows server 2012 r2, Hp laptop Core i5 with 500GB HDD Hard disk, 4GB RAM my question is can wampserver 2.5/ apache handle up to 500 students at a time to take the Exam?

(No other application is install on the laptop)

there is no real way to give an absolute answer to this.

As you are using a Server OS then there should be no issue with the connection limit that exists with desktop OS's but there are many things that can have an effect such as internet connections speed.

I would suggest that you trial this, starting with a smaller group of students then build the group size up to 500.

There is nothing like testing to prove things work!

(Windows 10 Pro 64bit) (Wampserver 3.1.7 32bit & 64bit)
<Apache versions MULTIPE> <PHP versions MULTIPLE> <MySQL Versions MULTIPLE>
<MariaDB versions MULTIPLE> <phpMyAdmin versions MULTIPLE> <MySQL Workbench 6.3.10>

Read The Manuals Apache -- MySQL -- PHP -- phpMyAdmin
Get your Apache/MySQL/mariaDB/PHP ADDONs here from the WAMPServer alternate Repo
