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 MAMP PHP/MySql Environment on a Macintosh
- Setting up the MAMP PHP/MySql Environment on a Windows
- Setting up the XAMPP PHP/MySql Environment in Microsoft Windows
You can use any software you like - I d most of my demos using MAMP on the Macintosh so using MAMP might be easier on Windows. If you encounter a problem getting MAMP to work on Windows, it is OK to use XAMPP.
