It's difficult to install apache and php on win7





spring567
Can you find apach and php base 64 bit on apache.og or php.net?
jmraker
You can get the 64-bit versions of both (plus mysql and other tools) in one download/installer at http://www.wampserver.com/en/

If you want to be adventurous you can always compile them from their source code
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/install.html
https://wiki.php.net/internals/windows/stepbystepbuild
You'll need to install a few compilers (gcc and visual c++) though

PHP 5.4 don't need apache for simple tests and development , it has a build in server

it's perfectly possible to run both on windows, but for test porpouses only i would recoment http://www.apachefriends.org/pt_br/xampp.html

which is a bundle with apache,php5.3, mysql and a few other softwares

I have a latest Windows 7 with 64-bit computer. I have installed XAMPP from apachefriends.org. I hope you can also find there.

I'm using Apache and PHP on my OS Window 7 but that's 32 bit version, actually I don't use that too much so I'm not facing any problem so far.

u can install WAMP server to get rid of the problem of installing them separately..

I would concur with the majority of posts on here.

1. They do run on 64-bit Windows and on 32-bit. They will also run on anything from XP to Windows 7. Older than that I do not know, but most likely if you update everything they depend on.

2. If you are still having issues install an alternative install method like XAMPP or WAMP. Both work well and serve their porpuse.

3. Good luck and hope you get it working. If you can post more information on what errors or messages you are getting more help may be able to be given.

You can install easyPHP and dont bother to install them seperately..
I think it installs Apache server.

I am using XAMPP on 64 bit OS but XAMPP itself is a 32 bit software. I have no problems so far. You can give it a try.

I prefer to use EasyPhp. It works in all Windows os.

I have Ubuntu 11.10 on my PC. I use LAMP. It is use to install and it has good documentations.

i use XAMPP or WAMPP on PC (win xp, vista or 7) its quite easy to install, really. If you have the microsoft's server installed / setup on your windows then you have to change the port of the apache server to run it(or get rid of it).

I use easyPHP has testing platform. It has all in one just like WAMP. smaller than WAMP but has nearly everything WAMP has.

XAMPP is a great option. Another thing you could try doing, if you are able to, Install a Virtual Machine running some form of linux, something like CentOS, which has a lot of default 'web server' options during install. VM's are good for emulating and providing a true LAMP stack on a windows machine. I say this because some libraries and binaries are not available on windows, which can have some implications to your code/site depending.

Just use Xampp or Wamp for Windows. Use Lamp for Linux.

Windows
--------------

You can install Wamp by going to: http://www.wampserver.com
You can install Xampp by going to: http://sourceforge.net/projects/xampp/

Linux
------------

To install Lamp; Open up the Terminal and enter: sudo apt-get install lamp-server

this will only work on Debian Based Distro's

I generally use WampServer as well. It's very easy to install and works well. Plus, it can be configured really easily from the icon in the notification area.
sysna
I recommend easyphp too , it comes with lots of modules that makes installation of most CMS/Forums just with one click like mybb, phpbb, joomla, wordpress , ...
