Wamp Packages Needed To Test Scripts Set up Apache, PHP, etc on your machine

Recommended Posts

In order to test php scripts on your localhost machine, you require a system that includes php parsing.
A WAMP set-up 'usually' includes a database server, and a database manager, too.
For Windows machines, theses are usually referred to as WAMP because they include Apache, Mysql, and PHP for Windows, hence the acronym WAMP.

Wikipedia has a listing of the available packages with details about the included versions and often a link to the wikipedia article describing them. The list can be found at http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/

Personally, I use XAMPP, because it is a one-click install. It also includes a Mail Server, Web Stats, FTP Server, and a lot of other stuff, too. Follow the instructions for each package and you should be good to go!
