Opinions EasyPHP and does it work with Vista

 9:53 pm on Dec 21, 2008 (gmt 0)

Does anyone here use EasyPHP?

Does it run on Vista?

Thanks in advance,

Not a clue, but try Xampp if not.

Works on XP/Vista 32/64, and very well.

Thanks, Sekka.
I see that there is a lite version that looks to be all that I require. I'll try that first and see how it goes.

15 minutes download, install, run - so far it works!

Under security, I noticed the comment:
"Every XAMPP demo page you are right now looking at is accessible for everyone over network. Everyone who knows your IP address can see these pages."
Does this mean that anyone who knows my IP address and knows the path to my xampp installation can see all my files online, really?

If you are behind a router, no they can't! :)

Only people on your network can see you.

However, you can stop that happening! Open up the httpd.conf file which is the configuration for Apache Web Server, by default located in "C:\xampp\apache\conf".

Near the top is the line "Listen 80", alter this to "Listen". This will tell Apache to only accept connections from the machine it is running on.

Thanks, Sekka.
I'm the only machine behind the router but I made the modification so that if I network another computer it will not have access.
I'm really impressed, so far. XAMPP light is exactly what I need. It even has phpMyAdmin.
It lacks filezilla and mercury, neither of which i require.
Thanks so much for the tip. It will save me a lot of time.
