Web-based development using PHP and MySQL requires you to setup an Apache server, PHP and MySQL. All of which are downloadable for free. However, setting all of these one by one should be a tedious task. Before, I’ve already tried installing the three. However, I failed to make the MySQL work. Thus, this has lead me for the search of the ultimate all-in-one package over the net. I was searching for the specifications that is commonly used by hosting services. Then, I came across EasyPHP. The EasyPHP package consists of Apache 1.3.33, PHP 4.3.10, MySQL 4.1.9, and PHP MyAdmin 2.6.1. The EasyPHP package is made by a group of French web developers and this could be used under the Windows environment. Setting it up is no sweat since there is a guide available on the Internet that is written in English.
