Install WampServer

{loadposition adposition4}


In order to develop a Joomla or WordPress web site on your local computer, you will need to install the following services: a webserver (Apache), a database server (MySQL server), and the PHP scripting language. There are a few popular programs out there that package together the Apache webserver, the MySQL server, PHP and PHPmyAdmin into one easy installer with a handy user interface and control panel in order to easily start and stop all of the services. My favorite AMP tools (Apache, MySQL, PHP) are WAMPserver2 and XAMPP. If you are runnning Apple OSX than search Google for a MAMP distribution.
