I remember hearing about XAMPP a while back, but since I finally decided to do something about the old Fedora box at home with Apache, and an old MySQL, and no PHP, etc… I figured I’d give The Apache Friends’ XAMPP a try…

Can I say wow? After downloading, the install consisted of expanding the tarball into /opt, and then starting it up. So within minutes you’ve got Apache (with SSL!) MySQL, PHP, Perl, and other stuff that all works together!

Damn that’s cool… Thanks Apache Friends!
