Re: XAMPP, WAMP under Windows Accessibility and Features

Thanks TJ:
  Can I maintain multiple versions of PHP on that setup?
  Are MySql and the server backward compatible?
  Isn't PHP backward compatible?
  That might be a big problem for developing software on request for clients 
with their own setups.
  Any way around it you know of?

  Hi,

    I have not used wamp in a while, but I do use xamp.

    The biggest thing to keep in mind is that you want to have the same version 
of php and perl on your testing xamp machine as the server that will eventually 
be running your site.

    As for accessibility, xamp is primarily apache and is setup with a text 
file.

    I have not used phpMyAdmin on my windows machine, a program that makes 
creating and managing myself data bases easier and that is the only "ui" that I 
can think of involved with xamp.

  php can handle all of the mySQL functions so there is no real reason to use 
phpMyAdmin other than speed.

  xamp is not one program.
  it is a couple programs running together to provide the final product.

  here is a list of the main programs in my xamp setup:

  apache  http server
  php
  perl
  mySQL data base
  FileZillaFTP
  Mercury Mail
  phpMyAdmin

    Hi Guys:
    Anyone worked with XAMPP Control Panels and UI or the WAMP UI and have any 
accessibility issues with them?
    Are there any major feature or version update issues or advantages to 
either for developing ECommerce Style Sites with Membership and Payment 
Processing functions??
