Learn to install Apache, MySQL, PHP, phpMyAdmin, Zend Optimizer and MySQL Tools on Windows XP (Install Zend Optimizer)
Notes: Zend Optimizer 3.0.1 For Windows or Zend Optimizer 3.3.0 For Windows didn't compatible with PHP 5.3.0 Zip Version (VC6 x86 Thread Safe).
We need an optimizer for all of our PHP code. So we’re going to use Zend Optimizer as it’s the industry standard and well it’s free and they also make a 32 bit version, so it will work on Windows.
So let’s start off by executing the installer that we downloaded in the beginning.
This will bring us to a window similar to this one, simple click on Next.
Next we must agree to Zend’s License Agreement, simply click on Yes after the agreement has been read.
Next the application would like to know where to install Zend, simply click on browse.
Find the new location, or type it in the URL bar. In this case we’re using “C:\server\Zend” as we’d like to keep everything in its own folder. Click OK then Next
Next we’ll need to select the type of web server we’re using. In this case we used Apache 2.x, so simply select Apache 2.x from the list and click on Next.
Next the installer would like to know where our “php.ini” file is installed. In this case it’s installed in the “c:\server\PHP” folder. So, click Browse button, and point it to c:\server\PHP.
This will look like after we have select the php.ini location
We’ll need to specify the location of Apache. In this case the location of Apache was “C:\server\Apache2.2”. After this has been confirmed or input correctly, click on Next.
This will look like after we have select the Apache location. Click Next
After that, the application will bring us to ready to install window. Simple click on Install and the installer will begin the installation of Zend Optimizer using our custom configurations.
This warning box telling us to stop the Apache web server before continuing the installation. Stop the Apache web server and click Yes to continue the installation
This warning box tell us that the installer fail to find the Apache services and told us to manually stop the Apache web server before continuing the installation. Since we've done already, just click OK to continue the installation
When it’s installing, we’ll see a window similar to this and will disappear automatically when finished.
This warning box tell us that the installer fail to find the Apache services and told us to manually start the Apache web server before continuing the installation. Start the Apache web server and click OK to continue the installation
Once everything is finished, we’ll get a window similar to this. Simply click on Finish and we’re done. Zend Optimizer is now installed in the location we provided and is configured using the settings we specified during installation.
Now we can test to see if Zend Optimizer is installed and running correctly. Let’s open our favorite browser and run the phpinfo() application, just like we did at PHP installation. Simply type in http://localhost/phpinfo.php as the URL and hit enter.
If you get a page similar to this (look closely at the highlighted word, the Zend Optimizer word), then everything went just fine and Zend Optimizer is now installed and working correctly.
