PHP Code for LAMP / WAMP / XAMP

Hi Experts,

I am getting into PHP programming, just learning, and I'm wondering does the PHP syntax have any variation between LAMP / WAMP / XAMP / IIS environments?

By the way, does WAMP = IIS

Thanks

PHP is PHP no matter the platform
LAMP etc are just installers for the various software, nothing more.  They are not some different version of the software packages.

WAMP is Not IIS.  IIS is a web server by Microsoft and it is only the web server.  LAMP / WAMP / XAMP all use Apache for the web server and include PHP and MySQL and some other programs.  You can use PHP and MySQL with IIS.  I am doing that on one computer and Godaddy Windows hosting does that also.

Are you tired of cycling through the same browser tabs everyday to close the same repetitive tickets? In this webinar JumpCloud will show how you can leverage RESTful APIs to build your own PowerShell modules to kill tickets & tabs using the PowerShell command Invoke-RestMethod.

Okay, one other question...

I know AMP = Apache MySQL PHP

LAMP = Linux Apache MySQL PHP

WAMP = Windows Apache MySQL PHP

XAMP = ??? Apache MySQL PHP

GaryCommented:
AMP, LAMP, WAMP, XAMPP = Apache, MySQL and PHP

There is no difference between any of them except
LAMP is for installing on Linux
WAMP/XAMPP is for installing on Windows.

(oh XAMPP comes with Perl as well, not sure about the others)

If I install XAMP on the same machine as IIS, can I go back and forth as long as one server is stopped?

IIS is very greedy about port 80 as is Skype.  If either are running, Apache will not work on port 80 (which is the standard 'web' port).  I have one machine that runs both IIS and Apache but I had to put Apache on another port (8080 is a common choice).
