Thanks for the advice; I checked, and my system is set up to not accept outside connections.  I feel a little better now.  (We always do before the crash, don't we?  8-) )

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 :(

UGH! Yes. This is what I should have read a week ago. >_<

And make sure your versions of PHP and MySQL are consistent, or that your code works with both. When exporting MySQL databases for your remote server, use MySQL 4 compatibility.

Ed, I used Easy PHP and I liked it a lot. I want to ask if there is package that supports PHP4 too, some scripts I may use needs it. If not, please recommend the best package to develope locally for PHP4 scripts.

I am from the old school. I am still installing all of them myself!

I want to know how you compare it with WAMP? Pros and Cons?

I know that for whatever reason the support for PHP4 has been dropped(PHPMyadmin) comes to mind, which kinda sucks.  PHP5 is out and probably is the way to go.  Although, I'm sure there has to be a few packages that still support "4", customs are out there.

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 :)

- Ed

I prefer wampserver: http://www.wampserver.com/en/

I used to use easyphp until I had some unsolvable problems. Had to switch to wampserver and everything was fine since.
I keep a web development journal as well as a web hosting one.

Even easier is to install MAMP on a Mac to take advantage of what's already installed.  It also gives you phpmyadmin and other tools.
Combine that with ln IDE like Netbeans and you have everything you need for php development.

I have PHP MySQL and Apache running in my home windows pc to do testing, but I don't have mod rewrite.  How do I add that?  Does that require a recompile of the EXE?

My guess would be that mod_rewrite is a module that needs to be compiled and linked into the server (Apache). I would ask on a support forum for whatever specific package you use (WAMPP, XAMPP, LAMPP, etc.).

Have you tried enclosing the rewrite section in .htaccess with something like
Code: [Select]
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c> ... </IfModule>? I think that's the right syntax, but you should check. You might have mod_rewrite, and just need to explicitly invoke it.
