XAMPP is a very easy to install Apache Distribution for Linux, Solaris, Windows and Mac OS X. The package includes the Apache web server, MySQL, PHP, Perl, a FTP server and phpMyAdmin.
In the latest XAMPP Version 1.8.3 on Win7 64b, there is a problem that php.ini line
include_path = ".;C:\Pro\xampp\php\PEAR"
does not work while the line for UNIX does:
include_path = ".:/php/includes"
... the issue is apparently in the : instead of ;
In the XAMPP Version 1.7.3, which is the version that uses one of my colleagues, the Windows line works all right.
That problem was in the 1.8.3 version and it was there until 2015.
That problem in Xampp has been solved for a long time!
I like that everything works from php, mysql and ftp with very little configuration and can be setup in around 20 to 30 minutes.
