WAMP and PHP Development
January 3, 2006
A couple of weeks ago, I started working on a tutorial to add a forum to a site using Dreamweaver, PHP and MySQL. The tutorial pointed me to a product called WAMP, which is a package of Apache, PHP and MySQL that allows you to run a test server on your local machine. I have been hesitant to load these software packages separately because when I have investigated it in the past, it meant changing some configurations in Windows and I don’t feel comfortable doing that. I had tried another product for awhile but it did not have an updated version of PHP. WAMP has the latest so I am giving it a try. One of my goals this year is to learn how to do some more development with PHP. I was excited last week when I received a book I recently ordered, PHP for Dreamweaver 8. Now I just need to make some time in my schedule to work through it.
