#1

Good afternoon!
I am a baby coder. I tried to install MySQL on my system but the “MySQL” server did not install.
Also, I tried to install Apache, after I have download it from the website, unzip and copy to C:/,
I have “C:\Apache24” but it didn’t install see the message

C:\Apache24\bin>httpd -k install
Installing the ‘Apache2.4’ service
The ‘Apache2.4’ service is successfully installed.
Testing httpd.conf…
Errors reported here must be corrected before the service can be started.
httpd: Syntax error on line 72 of C:/Apache24/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot load modules/mod_access_compat.so into server: %1 is not a valid Win32 application.

Please, I need someone to help me out.
Thank you all.

I always just install WAMP on my machine: http://www.wampserver.com/en/
Comes with Apache, MySQL, and PHP / phpMyAdmin already built right in. Basically it gives your PC the ability to act like a server.

Just a heads up though you’ll need like every Microsoft Visual C++ package from like 2008 on if you don’t have them already installed, but check out this link for more info on all that: http://forum.wampserver.com/read.php?2,138295

You can find all the Visual C++ packages here along with a checker program to see if you have them installed already: http://wampserver.aviatechno.net/?lang=en&prerequis=afficher

Another plus to WAMP is you can download and install other versions of PHP and switch back and forth between them depending on what you’re working on and if it needs a specific version.
