Using XAMMP To Toubleshoot a Website

XAMMP is package containing a complete LAMPP stack configured to work out of the box. It is avalable for Mac, Windows, and Linux from ApacheFriends.org and includes

  1. Apache
  2. MariaDB
  3. PHP
  4. Perl

XAMPP is excellent for testing a new website, testing updates for an existing site, or troubleshooting a misbehaving site.

In this podcast, Frank tells how to set up XAMPP against the background of having recently had to troubleshoot his own recalcitrant website.

XAMPP startup messages:

# cd /opt/lampp
# ./lampp start
