Two trivial questions really
I bought Kevin Yank’s book some time ago now from Sitepoint, and in it he advises downloading MySQL from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/ and says that it should be about 17MB in size.
I downloaded MySQL Installer from this page and the installer is 170MB
Question 1: With such a difference in size, is this the correct programme to install?
Secondly, I have already installed Apache2 and PHP5 on my Windows 7 system, and managed to get get them to work together.
Question 2: Can I install MySQL after having installed Apache and PHP, or must MySQL always be installed first?
