  Pre-configured web server for Windows (zip, 129Mb), with Apache + PHP + MySql

1) Unzip the folder "xampp" to "C:\xampp\"
2) Place the MIDOP folder (extracted from the MIDOP package above) into "C:\xampp\htdocs"
3) Execute "C:\xampp\setup_xampp.bat"
4) Execute "xampp-control.exe"
5) Start the Apache server and the MySQL server
6) Open your browser and go to http://localhost/MIDOP

Beware that to correctly startup the Apache server on Windows,
softwares such as Skype should be turned OFF as they use
port 443, which is required by Apache.
In order to use Skype and Apache at the same time proceed as follows:

  1. Turn OFF Skype
  2. Turn ON Apache and MySQL
  3. Wait until the Apache server is up and running (check http://localhost)
  4. turn ON Skype

The predefined MySQL user is 'midop', the password is 'midop'.

the pre-configured web server is a custom webserver mostly based on the XAMPP portable 5.6.3
with Apache 2.4.10, MySQL 5.6.21, PHP 5.6.3, phpMyAdmin 4.3.8, XAMPP Control Panel 3.2.1
