<h1>Alternative LAMP/WAMP/MAMP/etc. Stacks</h1>

<p>If you need a development environment to try out the ZF, there are several possibilities that require less effort than manually installing and configuring a web server, PHP, and a database. In approximate order of effort required (post ZF 1.0 release):</p>

<h2>Linux</h2>

<ol>
<li>ZF Community Server: <a class="external-link" href="http://framework.zend.com/wiki/display/ZFDEV/Sandbox">http://framework.zend.com/wiki/display/ZFDEV/Sandbox</a></li>
<li>Many <a href="http://distrowatch.com/">popular Linux distros</a> come with PHP, a web server, and a database mostly pre-configured.</li>
</ol>

<h2>MacOS:</h2>

</ol>
</li>
</ol>

<h2>Windows</h2>

<ol>
<li><a href="http://sourceforge.net/projects/xampp/">XAMPP</a></li>
<li>Linux/Windoze/Anything: <a href="http://www.knopper.net/knoppix/index-en.html">KNOPPIX</a>
<ul>
<li>no install required, but all work/configuration lost after reboot, unless manually saved</li>
<li>boots Linux directly from a CD on almost any system</li>
<li>does not use the hard disk (can safely boot KNOPPIX on a Windoze system with harming it)</li>
</ul>
</li>
<li><a href="http://www.cygwin.com">Cygwin</a> (but requires much more effort than XAMPP or KNOPPIX)</li>
</ol>
