Re: XAMPP, WAMP under Windows Accessibility and Features

Hi Rick,

You asked:

After I build a WebSite for a client is there a packaging facility to transfer 
the project to the client and would I need to include any PHP or MySql native
DLLs?

a.  php is written in text files, commonly called script files.  There are no 
dll files needed.  Compressing all of the files together into one zip file 
would be a good way to transport the files to your client.  Of course you could 
ftp the project uncompressed is you wanted.
 

Second, will XAMPP and Visual Studio play nice if located on the same machine 
or would it be better to run them on seperat machines?

a. I am sorry, I do not use Visual Studio  yet, so I can not answer this 
question.

If seperat machines, does XAMPP care if the Windows OS is Home Edition or Pro 
Edition?

a.  I have not run xamp on any thing other than windows pro, but I can not 
think of any reason that it should not run on windows home.

hth.

  Good Morning TJ:
  Thanks!  
  Only two more questions for now big guy.

native DLLs?

    Rick,

    You ask a lot of good questions.

    As for running different versions of php, mySql with apache,

    wamp and xamp are so small, around 200 meg installed, you can have one 
install with say with version of php 4 and mySql 4
    and another install with other versions.

    I use the term "install" loosly, because there is no real "install"
    You uncompress the xamp file into a directory and configure it with 
settings in a text file.

    Once you get conbfortable with the apache config file, a must read with 
comments, you will need only minutes to configure another setup of apache.

    If disk space is a problem, you can have one "install" of apache with many 
different apache config files and load the needed one at startup.

    most hosts that run apache are going to be running apache 1.3 or 2 with 
php4 or 5 with mySql 4 or 5

    the latest setup might be apache 2 with php 5 with mySql 5
    my host still runs apache 1.3 with php4 and mySql 4which is a proven winner

    Again the best is to download wamp or xamp and start configureing it to 
meet your needs.

    TJ

      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??
