Installing Apache, MySQL, and PHP with David Gassner describes how to install and configure Apache HTTP server, MySQL database server, and PHP, known as the AMP stack, on a local development computer. Chapters are devoted to multiple installation approaches: installing the components separately on both Windows and Mac (including coverage of Apache and PHP on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and 10.8 Mountain Lion), installing the pre-packaged Apache and MySQL distributions in WampServer on Windows and MAMP on Mac, and installing the cross-platform XAMPP and Bitnami on both Mac and Windows. Exercise files are included with the course.

In this course, I'll describe a number of ways to set up a local AMP installation on both Windows and Mac OS10. I'll show how to use the separate components from the vendors who manage these software packages.
And I'll also show you some easier ways to get started with free software bundles. Such as WampServer, Mamp, XAMMP, and Bitnami. I'll show you how to configure Apache for use on Windows 8 and I'll offer some troubleshooting tips describing the issues that are reported most commonly by our members. We're going to continue to keep this course up to date as these software products evolve. we'll do our best to have this course reflect what you see when you do your own installation.
