    I download, install and set up everything individually and manually. I like it better that way; knowing exactly what's going on, and having total control over how everything is config'd. I'm sure easyPHP, wamp and others like it give total control in some way, but I'm a bit old school when it comes to developing. For instance, no Dreamweaver or the like for me. It's got to be hand coded or nothing.

    I tend to upload everything to a subdomain on my host.

    If I really need to do local testing, I'm rather sad and have a virtual Ubuntu LAMP box.

    I like your style. What do you use as an IDE. Please don't say notepad lol

    @KURTZ
    ... and take this Editor with XAMPP. It's a perfect combination.

    Yeah notepad is a little too plain for me. I like syntax highlighting, so I've been using an ancient editor called AceHTML. It has bells & whistles that I rarely use, but it has decent debugging, compiling etc. There are definitely some much better solutions out there, but I'm partly too lazy to learn a new one, and partly out of money to lay down for what I really want, lol.

    My development server setup includes the latest Apache, PHP, Perl and MySQL on Windows. One of these days I plan to move it all to Mac, but that's yet another learning curve I'm too lazy to ride. :p

    Mike and I both use Zend Server CE. It runs XenForo spectacularly well and gives you PHP, MySQL, Apache, phpMyAdmin, APC, Zend Debugger and a whole bunch of other useful stuff in a single install, complete with a nice point-and-click administration interface afterwards. I can't recommend it highly enough.

    hmmmmm.....
    • Bytecode accelerator (Optimizer+)
    • Zend Data Cache
    • A certified PHP distribution
    • Zend Framework
    • Apache (or IIS integration)
    • MySQL (on Windows and Mac OS X)
    • Out-of-the-box connectivity to all common databases
    • Java code connectivity
    • Web-based PHP administrator console
    And the price fits my budget. :D I do need to bring my environment into this decade.

    I use XAMPP on Win7 64 bit.

    I also use Eclipse so I can synchronise the local install between myself and the main site coder.

    german edition?

    sounds interesting ... what you meant with 'synch'? maybe you meant that if you did a mod on local automatically this mod will be applied onto the live?
