That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I got an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could answer your iPage question..

Yes I do it on widows pc. The only problem is I don't have a mail server so when I reach a place where OSC want to send mail it create an error, but other then that it works..

I intalled.

Apache web server.

Http://www.apache.org/.

PHP4.

Http://www.php.net/.

MySQL.

Http://www.php.net/.

I also intalled PHPmyadmin to make database admin easier..

Just would like to add XAMPP:.

A.o.: MySQL phpMYAdmin PHP Apache.

Version for windows and linux available,.

Newest windows version is very easy to install..

If you're a Mac user with OSX it's out of the box with Apache.

Wow .... the description seems very interresting .....

I am downloading it and will try it right now!..

Comment #5

Just tried EasyPHP to do a quick compare to XAMPP..

Maybe EasyPHP even is a tiny bit easyer to use than XAMPP (clicking on shortcuts i.s.o. clicking on ".bat" files to start and stop the applications). Seems that XAMPP has more features/packages included (which I will probably never use)..

I like that I can take the whole XAMPP installation move it elsewhere, run the install and in a few clicks it runs on the new drive/computer. I am taking it with me on a USB stick now, and all this without leaving a mess on the PC I used it on! Not sure if that's posssible with EasyPHP..

You still have to "reinstall" osC (=another few clicks), otherwise the absolute paths are wrong after the move..

Yes it is ... !.

If you are a *nix user, install all necessary servers and applications! :-).

If you are a windows user, download and install EasyPHP.

Http://www.easyphp.org.

You will get an Apache Web Server with PHP support, MySQL and phpmyadmin to manage your databases! There are also other similar solutions, but that's the one I use! ;-).

If you are a Mac user .... I don't know ..... anybody??.

Regards,.

Antonios..
