  • 4. Benefits of WAMP The stack also comes with  Xdebug – tool for PHP debugging  PHPMyAdmin – A web tool for administrating MySQL databases  Webgrind – profiling tool for PHP  Some nice configurations (really easy to start developing, not configuration)

  • 6. To Install WAMP Go to Download the installer (you may need to run it as administrator) For the SMTP Wizard Screen – Click next It will install itself as a tray icon
  • 7. WAMP Control Panel This is the tray icon All configurations are there – PHP, Apache, MySQL If the icon is green – the services are up and running 7
  • 8. To Run WAMP From the Tray Icon, left click and  Click the “Put online” button  After this, click “Start all services”  Go to http://localhost/ and see the welcome screen  But ! There can be some problems   Port 80 can be occupied by other programs 8

  • 11. Webroot directory Where PHP Files go
  • 12. WAMP Directories Lets have the default installation directory - c:/wamp/ The directory of interest is www/ and it’s called webroot (or document root)  PHP Files are put in the webroot (c:/wamp/www/)  C:/wamp/www/ maps to http://localhost/  For example, c:/wamp/www/project/script.php maps to http://localhost/project/script.php  If no file is specified, Apache looks for index.php
  • 13. WAMP Directories Webroot can be configured Go to the menu -> apache -> httpd.conf Search for DocumentRoot and change it according the needs
  • 14. Configurationshttpd.conf, php.ini, my.ini
  • 15. WAMP Configurations There are 3 main configuration files  httpd.conf – Text file with Apache related configurations (i.e. webroot, port for http listening, etc.)  php.ini – Text file with PHP related configurations (i.e. short tags, upload file size, etc.)  my.ini - MySQL related configurations (i.e passwords, query buffers, cache, etc.)
  • 16. We are going to do someconfigurations on the fly
