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.

The exercise files that accompany this course, Installing Apache, MySQL, and PHP, are free for everybody. They include some custom files that I've created and also one open source software package that I'm redistributing that should make it easier to test and manage your software. The files include a PHP file called phpinfo.php that you can use to test your PHP installation; a text file that you can use to uninstall MySQL on Mac OS X; an SQL file that creates a new database with structure and data in MySQL; and then in the phpmyadmin folder, the actual phpmyadmin software.
This is a free, open source web application that you can use to manage your MySQL databases, and it works on both Mac and Windows. And to go with that software, I've created some brief configuration files that should make it easier to get up and running with the software on your choice of operating system. So again, the exercise files are completely free and you don't need a Premium membership to use them.
