Mac OS 10.11

Learning PHP and was told to download XAMPP. There are three versions for OS and it isn't clear to me which on works best the El Capitan (10.11.6). Are there any preferences as to which one to chose? Experience tells me to go with the latest version. Also, already running MySQL does this pose a problem?

Use the version fitting best the requirements of the webapplications you want to use on it.
From my experience better choose a lower version because webapplications are often backward compatible but only very few are so up to date to run flawlessly with the newest versions of especially PHP.

Thanks. Right now I want to learn PHP so that I can develop a web page that automatically updates customer inquiries and while tracking use of the product (text and message retrieval). I think this will help me to build a front end GUI without having to buy Access or any of the other commercial relational database management systems. I earned my MSCIS in 1989 and then went to medical school. Have gotten a little rusty. Does this seem to be a good approach?

How do you want to learn PHP exactly?
There are many outdated ressources on the internet.
So choose the version your learning ressource is close to.
