Setting you a web development environment in Windows is a big heahache. Here is a list of all on one WAMP packages.
I first tried EasyPHP, everything seems working fine. By default it is bundled with phpMyAdmi module and i downloaded the virtual host manager module such that i could setup a new virtual host and try running a Drupal on it. But here comes the problem.
- It failed to load some Drupal CSS files due to 403 access denied.
- The EasyPHP default modules listing page is http://localhost/modules while Drupal core modules are also located in the same url. I guess it could be resolved by virtual host setting but i couldn’t figure out how to fix it.
- Can’t import DB thru phpMyAdmin. Please refer to EasyPHP – Import DB error for solution.
So i gave up.
It doesn’t look light weight at all. After the installation, i try to access the Zend Server admin page but a blank page is returned and i also couldn’t import DB in phpMyAdmin just like what i experienced before on EasyPHP. So i give up again.
This is what i am using right now. No problem for running Drupal and i could setup virtual host without any problem. phpMyAdmin working fine and DB import without error as well.
i haven’t tried it. Anyone could give comment on it?
Let me know your thoughts~ =D
