:?: I am a beginner in the PHP arena. I do consider my skills average with website design using all the Macromedia products and have also developed several applications in MS ACCESS. I would now like to try MySQL along with PHP. Here is my situtation and maybe someone can tell me which course I need to take.
I plan on loading Apache, MySQL and PHP on my local machine. Currently have a 60 gig HD and also an extra 20 gig HD I could install if needed. Currently running Windows XP Pro but would like to load Linux to run MySQL and PHP on. I could partition the current 60 gig or install the 20 gig to run on.
I guess my question is which would be the easiest to setup and confiqure to run the MySQL & PHP on, the partition or the extra 20 gig HD? I also read something somewhere that suggested it would be best to run the MySQL on separate partition than the personal webserver etc.
Advise Please..or maybe point me to a good tutorial on this matter..
Thanks in advance
