Aptana IDE

Aptana is an IDE used primarily for developing Ruby on Rails applications but it can be used just for creating simple sites using HTML & CSS. It can also be installed as an Eclipse plugin.

Getting Started with RadRails from Aptana, Inc. on Vimeo.

XAMPP: Tomcat Server

Just installed the Tomcat Server for XAMPP & kept getting the following message...
The admin/config user (xampp) for Tomcat Server has an old password (xampp)

Someone on the XAMPP forum was having the same problem but never got it solved.

All that needs to be done is turn off the Tomcat Server then locate tomcat-users.xml which should be located at C:\xampp\tomcat\conf & change the name & password. Then just restart the server.

XAMPP 1.7.3

In the past I used to set-up MySQL, PHP & Apache separately. However recently I brought a copy of HTML, XHTML & CSS for Dummies which had a section dealing with setting up a Server. The author had decided to use XAMPP instead of installing all the components individually.

It took me just about an hour to get everything configured correctly & it was much simpler than what I used to go through before.
