Local Server?

Recommended Posts

I would like to test some things with IPB on my system but have not clue on how to run a local server. I got Win 7 64-Bit. I recall a while back their was a program I could install and turn it on and off to run a local server. Anybody have any ideas on such a program or even how I can do what I'm trying to do another way?

you need to install iis from add features and you will need to install php and mysql.

you could run apache also, have not done that myself though.

but mysql is needed no matter what route you go.

Is there not a program that can install all that for you and all you have to do is run it or not?

Anyway : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc725762.aspx installing IIS 7.5 on Windows 7 (note, its not a full version of IIS)

After you've installed go to here http://php.iis.net/ and install it

http://mysql.com/downloads/mirror.php?id=404970 if your running a 64 bit OS
http://mysql.com/downloads/mirror.php?id=404987 if your running a 32 bit OS

Once everything is installed you will have to of course configure it, you'll need to Create the site via Internet Information Service (IIS Manager) you can find this via the search function on the start menu (at least its the quickest way)

Your files by default will go in c:inetpubwww

have heard of it but never tried it, it work well?

my stuff here is iis due to exchange server but having ability like that would be useful.

i have only ever run into 1 issue.. which is a general unrelated Warning: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.
uniform itself very solid.... including backups of your local sql, cron jobs, a very solid phpmyadmin...
pretty much everything youd have on a real server.
