Tried to install WAMP manually to learn PHP. It almost put me off development altogether, but great when it worked and I learnt a lot doing it. The next time I used Xampp before moving on to vagrant & VMs.

Sometimes setting up the Dev environment is the hardest part of learning. But better to learn in dev than production!

    When I first started doing PHP I used MAMP, which didn't work very well.
    Switched to XAMPP, and have never looked back :)
