Q: The pecl installation of uploadprogress fails, saying it is not a valid package archive. How can I install uploadprogress?

A: There is a bug in Ubuntu's pecl that was introduced after the course was recorded; the workaround command is "sudo pecl install -Z uploadprogress"

Q: Where can I get the exact versions of the software used in this course?

A: The course is designed to be forwards compatible and should be functionally equivalent with future minor and major versions. With that said, some may want to use the precise versions used during the development of the course. For reference:
*VirtualBox 4.3.10 -
*NetBeans IDE 8.0 for PHP -
*SourceTree 1.8.1 (Mac), 1.5.2 (Windows) -
*Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS -
*PuTTY 0.63 -

Q: In Windows, git operations ask for a password. Why?
