Installation order

Hi all, few quick ones hopefully.

I'm helping a student friend out setting up a website as part of the coursework.

The website is to be a swap site, so database driven and hosted on a hard drive using xampp.

Would I be right in assuming we need the following programs?





If so in what order are they installed?

Im afraid my knowledge is limited to the graphics side of things, so don't be shy in telling me I've got it all wrong and to start again ;-)

contains Apache/MySQL/PHP and Perl, so you only have one thing to instal.

Perfect, thanks FE.

I'll be back with more questions no doubt, so I'll leave this unticked for now.

If the site is uploaded to a server with mysql, etc, and once completed, is it a simple process of just moving the database (import into mysql on hardrive) and then the website files into the xampp .htdocs file?

I'll put this one to bed for now and hope it works, otherwise he'll have to pay for his own hosting space, never mind, it's one less night out for a student ;-)

Whoever said mysql and php was easy was having a laugh!
