I have a pet project to develop a browser based mp3 player. Most of it is in MySQL and php and then there's a flash based component. I'm using apache2. The path of my share folder in samba is
[website] path = /development/public_html
is the same as the directory path of my directive.
<Directory /development/public_html> *some stuff* AuthUserFile /development/passwords Require user someone </Directory>
My current setup is a computer and server in my room. The computer I'm working on is running windows and I when make changes to the php files I can immediately view them online. I can't use wamp just because I need to do a lot of stuff in linux and my windows computer isn't powerful enough to handle some of the stuff I want to do.
I'm really new to programming and just wanted to know, is this method considered efficient?
What other alternatives are there to immediately view the changes you've made online?
