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.

This course, installing Apache, MySQL and PHP covers software that changes frequently. Here's what's changed in this course update. We've looked at all the locations where you get the software we describe in this course and, where necessary, added annotations to movies describing new software download locations and links. There's new coverage of Apache HTTPD 2.4 on Windows. For this newer version of the Apache HTTPD Server you can only get an installer as a zip file, not as a binary installer and so there's a description of how to install it from the zip.
There's a newly revised movie describing how to manage Apache from the command prompt, including how to stop and start it, how to be able to easily manage Apache from any folder on your file system, and how to set up Apache as a Windows service. On Mac OS10, I'm now always using the Nano Editor. That's an editor that's included with the OS10 installation to edit hidden configuration files. In previous versions of the course, I sometimes used Textwrangler, but the newest versions of that product and of Max OS X, make it harder to work with hidden configuration files.
And finally, there are completely new verisons of Bitnami. For both Windows and OS 10. These software packages are free and pretty easy to install but there are a couple of gotchas I described in those movies. As always, if you see any discrepancies between what you see in this course and what's really out there on the web, please let us know. We'll continue to revise this course as needed to make it match the reality you see as an Apache, MySQL and PHP developer.
