Setting up your PHP/MySql Devlopment Environment
In this page, you will install a programmer text editor, install a bundled all-in-one PHP/MySql application, and explore that application briefly.
We have separate pages for each of the commonly used Operating Systems:
- Setting up the XAMPP PHP/MySql Environment in Microsoft Windows
- Setting up the MAMP PHP/MySql Environment on a Macintosh
- Using Apache and MySQL in the Bash Shell on Windows-10 - Only use this if you can tolerate a little more complexity.
You can use any software you like - I suggest XAMPP for Windows and MAMP for Macintosh because it seems as that these install most reliably and with the least tweaking.
