I want to upgrade my AMP stack.
How do I get rid of what I have now without leaving anything behind?
This is a far too broad question to ask.
If you want a decent answer then be more specific.
- What kind of architecture are you using besides (AMP) which I think is Apache-MySQL-PHP ?
- Are you using Linux as the server or something else?
- Why do you want to upgrade? (performance, security, etc.)
I have Apache-MySQL-PHP ( AMP) installed on my
windows xp machine. I use it as a dev system and
to learn various things.
The versions I've got right now are:
Apache v 2.2; PHP v 5.3; MySql v 5.1
I just want to upgrade to the latest versions.
Not sure if it's worth while or not but it will be nice
to know how to go about doing it!
It seems pretty up to date. PHP 5.3.8 is the latest stable release. Apache 2.2 and MySQL 5.1 are fine too.
For development purposes try using XAMPP
Or better yet, create a virtual machine (using Virtualbox for example) with a Linux installation and install everything there, this way it won't affect your computer and you can replicate / replace / create different versions of the virtual image anytime.
Great thanks for the info. I thinink I will leave it as is then and look into
XAMP and Virtualbox. Also looking into getting dedicated dev computer
Thanks a lot,
Can I install XAMP with the AMP install I have now
or do I have to remove one?
You will have a conflict there because XAMP will install Apache, MySQL and PHP in its own path and will not respect what's being installed already. It is likely that since you already have a versiion of Apache running, it will use port 8080 instead of 80 which will likely be occupied by the first installation.
Thanks molona. I will keep the installation
