Join Kevin Skoglund for an in-depth discussion in this video Installation overview, part of PHP Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Before you can start coding in PHP, you will need to have a web server installed and configured to interpret PHP code. There's a course in this library called Installing Apache, MySQL, and PHP, which will help you to get everything you need installed on Windows, Mac, or Linux. In that course, chapter one will help you to decide which software to install. Some developers prefer installing separate software components, while others prefer prepackaged software bundles, like the popular WampServer for Windows.
PHP and the exercises in this course will work the same regardless of which one you decide to use. Then, chapters two through six will guide you through the installation of Apache, MySQL, and PHP for your chosen platform. Even though this course will not use a MySQL database, it is a common part of PHP development and it's worth installing it at the start. Finally, notice that chapter seven will help you with troubleshooting if you run into any problems. Once everything's installed, you'll be ready to start learning PHP.
