I have been using this for a long time now and just realized that I have not even mentioned it on Solution Watch yet, XAMPP. XAMPP is an excellent method to install Apache, PHP, MySQL, phpMyAdmin, etc. Since the moment I installed the package, I have not had any issues and have had easy developing on my computer ever since.

Many people know from their own experience that it’s not easy to install an Apache web server and it gets harder if you want to add MySQL, PHP and Perl.

XAMPP is an easy to install Apache distribution containing MySQL, PHP and Perl. XAMPP is really very easy to install and to use – just download, extract and start.

XAMPP is available for Windows, Linux, Macintosh OS X, and Solaris. Also, just to note, it gives you the option to switch to PHP 4 of PHP 5 anytime you want by the click of a button. You can even get addons on top of everything they give you already! Such addons are: Perl, Python, Tomcat, and Cacoon.
