Beginners Question

Postby jamesthemonkeh » 05. November 2014 11:12

Hello

I am trying to learn Ajax from a book I have bought and have stumbled upon the fact that I cannot test it as I would test any other JQuery code through my browser.

I have been pointed towards something called Xampp, downloaded it and have absolutely no idea what to do now.

Can someone kindly point me in the right direction.

Thanks
James

Xampp is a software package which contains the most basic tools for running a local webserver: Apache, MySQL, PHP, Perl. After installation open the Xampp Controldialog and start (at least) Apache and MySQL. After successfull start, you have a local webserver "http://localhost", put your HTML files into c:/xampp/htdocs (assuming that you installed Xampp to C: as suggested), lets say "test.html" and finally you may watch it in your browser via http://localhost/test.html

There is a MySQL Server running as well, the default values are:

Host: localhost
Port: 3306 (default)
User: root
Password: *empty* (leave it empty)

A Database called "test" is already created, of course you may create your own database.
