Developing locally on your own local PHP/MySQL/Apache server

Its easier than you might think!

I setup a dedicated local server once to let me do this but it turns out there is an even faster easier way to do it :)

http://www.easyphp.org/

 EasyPHP is a complete software package allowing to use all the power and the flexibility that offers the dynamic language PHP and the effecient use of databases under Windows. Package includes an Apache server, a MySQL database, a fully PHP execution, as well as easy development tools for your web site or your applications.

Best part - its a one click install on your local system :)

xampp works well for this purpose too. Also includes addons phpMyAdmin, and a few other nifty things.

I swear, phpMyAdmin is a God-send!  I'm so spoiled, I'm already forgetting the "type in" MySQL commands, I had to look them up this weekend for help on a friend's box.  LOL

Do you have a easy instruction for setting up a local server once on Mac OS 10? Thanks.

With MacOSX it's actually even easier since it comes with Apache installed but turned off by default. I think it even includes PHP. If you search through google I'd think you should come up with some easy tutorials on getting it active, adding MySQL, etc.

visit www.entrophy.ch for Mac OS X installer for PHP 4 and 5. THe site includes a lot of information for configuring PHP on OS X. IT also has info on MYSQL. It is very straight forward

Really? Have you done so? I did download the EasyPHP1-8 to my Mac OS 10, the exe file isn't executible. But EasyPHP works in the PC very well. Not for Mac, my friend.

What I was saying is that you don't need EasyPHP on the Mac because Apache and stuff are already installed by default with OSX.... and it stands to reason that a windows executable wouldn't run on MacOSX....

Thanks for the link, Ed!  It was cool to just be able to download everything all at once.

One thing to remember when developing locally on a windows machine and then uploading to lunarpages linux servers is CASE SENSITIVITY.
I was doing some php and msql stuff locally and then uploaded to LP, took me a while to realise I hadn't been consistent with the casing of my table columns  adn thats why it wouldnt work :(

Quick enquiry


Whilst developing locally, is there a setting in php.ini or elsewhere to turn off the hideous undefined index errors?

It's annoying that I have to first check if a variable is set before playing with it. I don't have to do this on my LP site.


Cheers


Best regards

Yeah, check the error_reporting setting.
