How do you test your PHP scripts? Upload them to your website server and test them one by one, or you test them locally on your computer first before upload them to the server?
To test my PHP files, I use WAMP . With WAMP, you can make your computer act as a website server. Before I knew about WAMP, I always upload my PHP files to web server to test them. But after one of my friends, name Azhar (I called him Ja’a) told me about WAMP, I now will test the scripts locally in my computer before I upload them to my site. [tags]wamp, wampserver, php[/tags]
What is WAMP?
WAMP is stands for Windows – Apache – MySQL – P HP. These are services that are needed to make your computer act as a server. When you install WAMP, WAMP will automatically configures them to work together. So you can test your scripts before you upload them to your server.
Do I really need WAMP?
If I were you, I will definitely install and use this software. This tool is really useful. Let say that you want to edit your wordpress site theme. After you have edit the theme, how you want to know whether the theme that you have edited contains no errors. As myself, I always edit my theme. I don’t know why, but I love to. He3. When I edit the theme, I will test it first. If it is not ok, I will edit it again until I satisfy. Then after all are finish, I will upload it to my website.
