The server included in Django is for development only, if you want to deploy your app to a production level, you would use another web server like nginx or apache and an application server like Gunicorn. XAMPP is is just like a launcher for servers included in it. So in a development environment they play the same role but for deployment they are different.

if you need to practice Php on your computer you need to run an apache web server, otherwise your code will not run in your browser. XAMPP include all the necessary services to make it easy, to run your website on your computer locally...

the point of XAMPP is to make it easy for beginners. you can get apache or any other web server if you want to, without XAMPP. you can start one with python. python3 -m http.server

Maninder $ingh XAMPP is not a requirement to run anything, it's just a project that put together many services( php, mysql, ftp,apache) in one place to make it easier for beginners. you can install any of them separately without XAMPP . what is confusing you exactly?

Maninder $ingh XAMPP is not a server. 😀 it's a package that includes apache server. it can be used for both development and deployment.
