PHP Project Setup Steps :

  1. If you have already XAMP server then jump to Steps 5
  2. Uninstall all MySQL software from control panel
  3. Install XAMP Server
  4. During the setup if you get any popup for permssion then click on allow access

  9. Extract it. On extraction there will be two things inside it. First the project_folder and second is .sql file
  10. Copy the folder only of your project from the extracted folder and copy it to your C:/xamp/htdocs. Suppose if you have Hotel Booking System project, then you dont have to copy the full folder, only the extracted folder you need to copy "hotel_booking_system" into htdocs
  11. Open the browser and run your project : http://127.0.0.1/copied_folder_name : It will be underscored name folder
  12. You will get mysql error if you runs it. Dont worry, its because you have not created the database
  13. Open phpmyadmin : http://127.0.0.1/phpmyadmin
  14. Create a database name, it will be same as the .sql file name without extenstion. Such as hotel_booking_system
  15. After creation select the database from left panel and click on import from right side panel from top tabs
  16. Choose the .sql file from the extracted folder and then click on go
  17. Wait for successfull import
