Advertisement Some of our articles here on MakeUseOf require the use of your own web server. Although the easiest way to go about finding web space is to where a web server is already set up for you, a free and almost-as-easy to use option is to install a server on your local home computer.
We have covered previously and now I would like to update the topic with a software package known as XAMPP. Is a collection of software that includes Apache, MySQL, PHP and Perl. It also includes Tomcat, FileZilla FTP server and Mercury Mail for sending emails.
When finished, click “Yes” to start the control panel. There is a bug if you are running 64-bit versions of Windows (Vista, 7 or Server 2008). It will say “XAMPP Component Status Check Failure ”, but it is safe to ignore this error as everything else seems to work fine. I also received several popups after installing the software. One was from Microsoft Security Essentials asking to send the FileZilla binary to them for analysis (this software can sometimes be used in backdoors – however this use is legitimate) and also the Firewall will pop up a few boxes asking if you want to allow the port to be used.
XAMPP is an easy to install Apache distribution containing MariaDB, PHP and Perl. I have installed xampp 1. Auto Tune 7 Crack Mac Recipe on this page. 7.3 in ubuntu 9.10 and if i try to open the.php file in the browser it asks the me where to save the file and browser opens the source code rather than parsing the php file. Shows the index page of the xampp.if i try to store anything in /opt it shows access denied and i am, admin.
Leave the checkbox unchecked so that your server will not be available over public wifi and other open networks (for example if you connect at a Starbucks), but to still allow your server to be available from your local PC and other computers in your own private network. Next up is ensuring the security of your server.
By default there is no password for your MySQL’s administrator account, also known as “ root“. If you are on a small local network and you do not care who has access to the data stored in your machine then it is fine to leave this as is; however if you plan on opening your server up to the internet or you have roomates who you may not fully trust it is good to add a password to this account.
You can follow the links to set up security of your system. The first option sets a root MySQL password and the second puts a password on your entire web directory.
Finally, if you plan on accessing your server outside of your home, you will need to log into your router and forward port 80 to your local machine. This is much easier to do if you are set up on a static IP address. Installing Programs On Your Server The main thing you need to know about where your server stores data is that it is in a subdirectory of your installation directory named htdocs. In my situation the web directory is: C: xampp htdocs This includes the administration program. The default page your web server loads when you visit is index.php.
You can open that file to replace it with your own text or remove it altogether, it is really up to you. Now that you have a web server set up, what can you do with it? Well one popular thing you can do is to.
You can or even a, the possibilities are endless. Really what you get out of it is the ability to learn something new and provide an environment that allows you to create and modify code in a very easy way. Although this server is not meant for production use, it does give you a very reliable development environment and sandbox to learn the ropes, so to speak. After you have your server up and running, the world is your oyster. Install and run that software you’ve always wanted to test out.
