Bake a Windows site in 5 minutes!
« on: June 29, 2008, 08:50:38 PM »
Apache and PHP problems on Windows?
Use WAMP If you must use Windows :-D
WAMP is Free and Open Source.
You will have your WB site running in 5 minutes.
I did my experiment on XP Professional.

Here is a link to the WAMP project: http://www.en.wampserver.com

You may find this useful too: http://glob.com.au/sendmail/

Installation:
* Install WAMP
* Set password for MySQL
* Rename the index.php from the WAMP install to control.php
* Unzip the contents of the WB zip file into the www directory
* Run through WB setup



The WAMP control panel makes administration easy

You can also use a webserver on an usb stick. Verry handy to work on another location.
Download it at http://www.usbwebserver.com. However, the website is in Dutch. Use Google Translation to translate the site.

Just for the sake of completeness, XAMPP from the apache friends. XAMPP is available for Windows, Linux, Solaris, Mac and easy to set-up within minutes.

I am mostly working on 5 to 10 sites at the same time (including sandboxing etc..)

I am using SAMBAR server just because is has a very nice virtual server config (through admin web interface).
Unfortunatly Sambar is stopped development and even the main website does not exist anymore.

I don't mind using WAMP/XAMPP, but i would really like a more simple virtual domain management (using scripts).

Does anyone has a good tip for a GNU config tool for apache where I can simply create virtual servers?

Hi Ruud,

maybe a little oversized if you need it only for a local test-enviroment:

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But, in practice, there is.
