Installing PHP, Apache Server and MySQL seems to be very difficult and almost tiresome for the beginners and some times for average developers as well. But don’t worry we have a three in one like solution, the WAMP (Windows, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) Server. You just need to download WAMP Server and install it like other Windows Applications.
Don’t bother how to do all that, I’ve explained each and every step below. Just follow step by step instructions and you’ll end up with the installation of PHP, MySQL and Apache Server.
Step 1: Download and Install WAMP Server
- Download latest version of WAMP server.
- Double click the downloaded setup.exe file to install WAMP server as a local sever on your system. You’ll see the following window.
