Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I have installed Windows XP service pack 2 on my computer. I am thinking of installing a server PHP and MySQL into the system. Is it possible? If yes, what server software is compatible with this system and where can I download it? I would also like to know how to install it to my system.

Thank you.

Hello Chloe,

If you need a server that has PHP and MySQL which you intend to use for performing functions like basic programming, web design and database development then I will advice that you install the Apache webserver. Apache comes with PHP and MySQL embedded and you can use for any programming functions you want.

To install Apache you will need to install the xampp server which you can download for free online. Just visit the following sites to download xampp for windows.



Hope this helps.

Hi Chloe,

       The server programs that are compatible with Windows XP SP2 are PHP 5.3.2 and MSSQL Server 2000. PHP 5.3.2 this supports Namespace, static bindings, Jump Label, this has improved windows support. This version includes over one hundred bug fixes and security fixes.  For MSSQL Server 2000 here is an MSDN link that has a full documentation about it with sample codes.
