I'm a beginner learning how to build a dynamic web page. Although I've follwed the instructions to activate my Mac's Apache and install MySql, PHP module, and PMA files, I now feel it will be easier to follow the book's instruction if I use XAMPP instead.
My only conern is that may I still install XAMPP without deleting all the previous servers/softwares and not running into any trouble? If the answer is a no worries, should I at least de-activate Apache/MySql before activating XAMPP? Thank you very very much!!!
