In this post we’ll take a look at how to setup Apache, MySQL and PHP on Windows and Linux. This setup is mainly for a series of SQL injection labs that I’ll be posting in the upcoming days (you’ll find the link for the HTML/PHP below). For this reason, it will be a development setup not a secure one. 😉
What will be covered:
- Installation of Apache, MySQL and PHP
- Configuration of each service where needed
- Creating MySQL user, database and grant privileges
- Download HTML/PHP pages and configure it properly
Since I’ll be doing a series of SQL injection posts, I figured it would make sense to create this post given that understanding the installation process, database users/permissions all contribute to the vulnerability.
With that said, let’s begin!
