  • Running vBulletin Locally

    Good day everyone, I would like to run a test install of vBulletin locally, however, not sure where to start!?

    I seem to remember some time ago a program you could install on your local machine that made this very easy, however, do not remember what it was called.

    Anyhow, any help you could offer would be much appreciated, thanks!

      I have issues with Easyphp now..
      I used to run perfect. But after upgrading to Windows 7 64 bit, Anything the deals with mysql wont work.
      HTML, PHP CGI and a few basic mysql commands will work. But some of the more complex php scripts I have get the "The Connection was Rest" page. Not sure why. Same with WAMP

      But yeah I say give it a go. Thats what I used to do.. In fact...
      I wrote up a tutorial a while back..

        Which version of EasyPHP did you use? because on the most up-to-date ones do indeed have SQL issues, not sure if that is a Win 7 based issue, or all arouund, but if you go for one of the lower packages, it will work.

            For Windows, there is Wampserver. Never had problems with it before. Currently I use IIS 7. With PHP and MySQL installed manually.

            Most OSes can use XAMPP as well.

              I used to use XAMPP. But awhile ago, I've installed MySQL, Apache, and PHP manually and separately, and I'm happy with it.

              I've a question for you Wayne:
              Is it any good to use IIS over Apache?

                If you want to mess with .NET and Silverlight. Other than that they are pretty equal. In my opinion, IIS is easier to configure with its XML configuration files and GUI. I find it beneficial to be able to control FTP, SMTP and HTTP from the same control panel as well.

                        Uninstalled EasyPHP 5.3x and installed the 5.2 package of EasyPHP, All works seamlessly on Windows 7 x64.

                        Thanks...

                            Thanks, just found that post one day, and put it in my signature, found it to be rather funny.

                            Wayne, for say like a LAN thing where if i want to test PHP software or write custom scripts, which one would you recommend as being "Best"?

                            Thanks.

                              I installed xampp with Winx64. This worked as well, even with the php5.3. But I did find it to be slower.. I'm sure if you tweaked the php a bit to run locally, it may run faster.
