Installation of php/apache/mysql on Windows Vista
Hello, i'm looking for someone who can successfully help me install either WAMP or php/mysql/apache separately on my windows vista laptop. I also need a successful data connection then set up to this from Dreamweaver cs4 and it working correctly in a testing environment.
I have tried installing these software on their own and as WAMP many times but am continuously encountering problems with windows vista. I have uninstalled/deleted all these installed software off my laptop but if i've missed any this will need to be checked again with the developer who will be helping me sort this out.
Please see attached screen shots of the WAMP error messages i had received.
I havn't recorded the problems with installing the softwares (ie php/mysql/apache) separately but recall that they did install ok at one point, the only problem i encountered was that i couldn't get a dreamweaver cs4 data connection, it said there were problems with the localhost.
I would suggest that whoever is going to do this job considers installing them all separately as i have been told that is the safest from a security point and they did seem to work up to a point; whereas WAMP never worked from the beginning on my laptop.
Just a note - when i did try installing these i did turn of the Information Services server, my kaspersky firewall and my user account control from the services panel so as to prevent any conflicts but still not working. I'm not sure how to check whether apache is attached to port 80 but in my attached doc i have a screen shot of this - this might have been the only problem with WAMP.
I have been advised that because i have installed these softwares already on my machine they might interfere with any new installation, so the developer who is going to do this job must check that this is not happening before beginning.
I'm based in the UK and if there is a developer in the london area i'm willing to travel and bring my laptop to get this sorted - this would be the ideal option. If this is not possible, it will have to be a phone call to guide me through the installations, ill call you.
If all goes smoothly i don't think this would take more than 1 hour to do - but i'm paying $75 us dollars for someone to do this. I don't mind if it takes 20 mins or 4 hours, i'm only going to pay for this as a task to be completed 100%. If it's 99% completed and the developer has spent 2 hours on it i cannot pay anything as i've had it 99% working in the past myself. Please understand I can only make payment when this task is 100% completed and there is a successful Dreamweaver database connection. I do have a website hosted remotely so pages can be tested in this envirnoment.
Again, if you are in the London or even south east area i would travel to you with my laptop which would be ideal as you will have a better view of what's on my pc. it's a sony laptop i've had for about 1.5 years and i've had no problems with it so it must be possible to get this installation done.
I would recommend you have specific knowledge of installing apache/php/mysql and their admins - phpadmin/mysql admin on a Windows vista computer with an understanding of connecting up a database in a dreamweaver cs4 environment. By the way you don't need knowlege of Dw cs4, Dw cs3 is still ok for this.
You must be located in England, Wales, Scotland, N Irealand or Irish republic and have good spoken english and be willing to do a phone call about installation with me or me to travel to you.
If you think you can help or have a different pricing for this please let me know and i will consider it.
Please be aware i will not pay for this task unless it is 100% completed.
