In this course, we'll be setting up a testing environment. A complete development environment for the PHP server-side language. On the max side, we'll be working in MAMP. This is a complete testing environment for the Mac side. So I'll be walking you through the installation. On the Mac side of things using MAMP. On the PC side, we'll be installing XAMPP, and walking through that process. XAMPP is a complete testing environment for a variety of operating systems. In this example, we're working with it specifically for the Windows environment. On the Mac side, we're going to be using a product called MAMP. And both of these products allow you to work within a testing server environment. It sets up everything including Apache which is the web server, MySQL which is the database.
PHP, which is our server-side language, and there are quite a few other things that get installed at the same time as XAMPP, or MAMP. The idea is this is a complete testing and development environment. So we could fully test our pages before we actually move them out onto a web server. So that is the environment we will be working in, and I'll be walking you through the installations of both of these testing environments, as well as, getting all of your files working within Dreamweaver as well.
So let's get on with the course.
