    Changing From II6 > Apache

    Hi,

    Due to IIS being a pain in the arse with PHP it looks like I will be moving from IIS to Apache.

    How easy is this to do please? Any guides, hints tips and pointers will be appreciated.

    Re: Changing From II6 > Apache

    See last post in your previous thread, I recommend downloading and installing WAMP, it installs mySQL, PHP and apache with a few useful tools like php myadmin included.

    Keep your existing IIS installation intact by changing the port IIS listens on from port 80 to something else (8080 is a good choice) This way apache will be able to install and function correctly, and should it really not work out, you can go back to how you were before by changing the port in IIS back. When the website is up and running on apache, you can uninstall or disable IIS completely.

    If you do use WAMP, make sure you password your mySQL root account and secure phpmyadmin, or better still remove it entirely.

    Mike.

    Edit: and do the same for the SQLlite addon, forgot about that one!
