I have used MAMP for a long time, but I recently decided to build a development environment on my MacBook Pro to mirror my test and production servers. MAMP uses Apache 2.0 and I really wanted to run Apache 2.2. I also needed custom PHP for use with Oracle databases. I just want
ed to share the documentation to setup my development environment. Feel free to comment and let me know if you have any improvements.
I needed to install just the FTP service on Windows 2003 Server for one simple use case. The article below details how to accomplish this without installing full blown IIS (which I didn't need and do not want to run on this server).
I had a great time yesterday playing drums with the Rocky River Community Church Band at UNC Charlotte. We played the Staff Picnic for the second year in a row. We were not rained out this year, but the 97 degree heat beat us down pretty bad. We still had a great time and received a warm response from many of the picnic goers. Thanks to my band mates for volunteering to help out by playing at the event.
