Installing PHP under Windows: Further Configuration of WAMP
(Page 1 of 4 )

In the previous tutorial, your WAMP system on your home PC is best for use as a development server only. You may be able to host a personal home page or hobby page, but of course this would only be available when your computer is on and online.  Bearing in mind our decision to only use it as a development server we will have a specialised configuration.

In an attempt to make code developed on our server portable to the widest possible range of configurations, for other peoplesí servers, we will deliberately have a strict configuration, with many options turned off, this will force us to use 'better' programming techniques thus allowing anyone with Apache and PHP to run our code.

First we are going to configure Apache, I will attempt to justify my choices for any configuration changes that I make, as well as briefly explain other possible options.  This will allow you to choose your own options should your opinion differ from mine.
