  1. Installing a PHP/MySQL Development Server for students on Windows Server 2012 - Part2

    by , 29th April 2013 at 11:31 AM
    So, continuing on from Part 1, where we set up a PHP server on Server 2012, lets get into MySQL.

    You don't need to do this bit if you don't need the database functionality. There's still plenty you can teach with PHP alone, and that's what we're planning to do with Key Stage 4 anyway. Our Key Stage 5 do want to make use of databases though, so here we go...
