    Question Upgrading PHP/APache/MySQL?

    Hey folks,

    First off, please move this thread if it's in the wrong place

    I'm currently running phpDev on Win XP SP2 and would like to upgrade my version of PHP, Apache and MySQL. My question to you is... which versions should I upgrade to?

    Wayne posted a link to WAMP5. Would it be worth installing that?

    I've never used these packages that install WAMP (+a load of stuff you'll never use) as the installation of the individual packages is pretty easy and only takes a few minutes.

    Just get:
    apache_2.0.52-win32-x86-no_ssl.msi
    mysql-4.1.7-win.zip
    php-4.3.9-Win32.zip (or the PHP5 eqiv if you want to dabble in that)
    and follow their installation instructions. Shouldn't take more than 5-10 mins after they've downloaded.

    Well WAMP didn't work

    It installed ok but when I copied everything from my old mysql/data folder and www folder to the new folders, nothing worked. Looks like I'm gonna have to install everything manually!

    Hi KeithMcl

    ... you could try Appserv Open Project on http://www.appservnetwork.com

    They have made installers that in a single '.exe file gives you the whole WAMP thing. I have installed it on both win2k and winXXP, and it works just fine!

    You can download an ordinary package with PHP 4.3.8 or the new PHP 5.0.1
