Learn how to make sure PHP is available and running on Windows.
- [Instructor] Composer, the Dependency Manager for PHP,…runs on PHP itself.…So, before we get going, you need to make sure…you actually have PHP installed on your computer.…Windows does not have PHP installed by default.…And the easiest way to install PHP on Windows,…is to bring it in as part of an AMP stack.…AMP is the acronym for Apache, MySQL, and PHP.…An AMP stack gives you a web server with all the typical…components used in a PHP application.…And since you want to use Composer,…there's good chance you're building a PHP application,…in which case an AMP stack is probably…something you need, anyway.…
There's several AMP stacks available,…including, WampServer and XAMPP, and others.…If you don't want an AMP stack, you can also install…PHP directly from https://www.windows.php.net.…But, in most cases, it's a good idea to use an AMP stack.…And I prefer WampServer,…so that's what I'll use in this course.…You can choose to use WampServer, or XAMPP,…or whatever else.…Just make sure you have PHP on your computer.…
