PHP and MySQL


I use RedHat 9 and I have no Idea on how to start writing PHP and mySQL or how to start that service or what to use for it, I use vi for C++ what can I use for PHP? In windows I would use DreamWeaver but I don't know what to use in Linux. Please help. Thanks.

Write PHP - You can use vi to write the php code or you can get a fancy IDE like Zend Studio. php doesn't really care how it get's writ.

Run PHP - Configure your apache accordingly or ask your webspace provider if they support PHP

Learn PHP - Start at php.net or go to oreilly.com. Plenty of online and book tutorials available.

As for the mySQL parts, php supports mySQL quite nicely.

Question

Ok, I'm almost sure that I have PHP - MySQL install on my computer, but I want to be testing things locally, how do I make and see my Virtual Hosts, and what the address of it is, in windows I would just write //localhost/ in a brower I have no Idea on linux, also how can I see my IP address. I have found that yet. Thanks.

(These anwers and more can be found using the Search feature here on LQ.)

to see your ipaddresses - 'ifconfig'.

browsing locally - http://localhost is a safe bet for most distributions.
