  3. mail Server
  4. FTP client (Used to upload and download the content to the server)

  2. LAMP  (LINUX, APACHE, MYSQL, PHP)
  3. MAMP (MACINTOSH, APACHE, PHP)
  4. XAMPP ( X PLATFORM, APACHE, MYSQL, PHP)

 

The above listed are different installers different operating systems.

in our case we are selecting XAMPP in this X means any operating system. (i am using windows operating system)

To download go the following URL

OK GUYS IT WAS WORKING.

If you have problem to start the apache server

Check your System has Skype, Teamviewer, Oracle, or any testing tool softwares , if you found any softwares try to uninstall those

because apache by default runs in in port 80, i want to change it to 8082

If you dont want to uninstall and the softwares then change the port number for apache.

to do this follow this simple steps

Open c:\xampp\apache\conf\ open “httpd.conf” file with text editor (notepad)

search for the word which mentioned “Listen :80”

change the “listen 80” to another number Like “listen:8082

and also change the “ServerName localhost:80″ to “ServerName localhost:8082”

now save the “httpd.conf” file and restart the apache server

go to your web browser type “localhost:8082

now you will get XAMPP page it will ask for language selection

select your language and you will get xampp page it will shows the xampp version, PHP version , … it was installed
