How to Install the Drupal AMP Stack from Acquia
Post on November 17th, 2010
In web application development, a local development environment is built for programmers to develop and test their code before it goes ‘live’. This step is done to make sure everything is working properly before any visitor can see it as to avoid any unforeseen issues or errors.
Drupal runs on an AMP (Apache + MySQL + PHP) stack and has sometimes given newbies fits in trying to get all those pieces installed correctly with various installer packages such as MAMP, WAMP, or even XAMPP.
A new AMP stack installer called DAMP by Acquia has proven to be more stable and overall better than the others.
The main advantages of DAMP:
1. DAMP is much smaller (32MB) than MAMP/WAMP (160MB).
2. Hosts multiple sites.
3. Easier to access configuration and log files.
4. Good online documentation.
I wrote up a lesson (.pdf) on how to download, install and setup the Aquia DAMP on your PC.

About
This site started back in September 2005 as an online resource for my training at a local computer club. The material was based upon taching people how to do web programming with JavaScript.
It then expanded over the years to offer online classes (in JavaScript and ASP.NET) to anybody as well as more of a wider range of topics inlcuding HTML, CSS, PHP, ASP.NET, Flash, etc.
Feel free to contact me if you have any question on the online classes I offer or material covered.
