beginning_php thread: php setup


Message #1 by "Taher Moiyed" <taherm@f...> on Fri, 13 Jul 2001 16:45:56 +0100
i have decided to use ultradev as my coding environment

and because of that the only choice for me is win2k/IIS server

and to use mysql as my database server.



problem:

if after designing a website in php based on the above setup, will i able to

move it to a unix box without much problems. Initially i will design it on

windows platform but ultimately it has to go to UNIX, will this be a

problem??



secondly i have installed my sql on to my system but i  cant find a way to

actually create a table like i can in access, i mean no graphical view. does

this mean that i can create tables only by manual coding..



waiting anxiously for your response.



Regards

Taher Moiyed

Hi there you can use either IIS5 wich ships with W2K or you could install an

apache server. As to database aplications you can use nearly everything you

like but I would recommend mySql (www.mysql.com). Get yurself the php

installer from www.php.net and run the installation. Oh by the way a very

neat tool for mySql is phpMyAdmin wich you will find at

http://www.phpwizard.net/ . Hope that this info is a little help to you. If

you use Macromedia Dreamweaver Ultradev to develop your ASP pages take a

look at www.interakt.ro there you will find a extension called phakt that

allows you to code php pages with ultradev.

See our phakt list on the PHP page at http://p2p.wrox.com/php/ for using

Ultradev with PHP.



Please avoid changing subject line in mid thread, it gets very confusing.
