I am a web developer and have my portfolio site hosted by Inmotion. I am wanting to add some data driven widgets (javascript-php-mysql) to my website. As I develop the widgets I want to use php and mysql on my local computer to test them before uploading the code to my portfolio site so I want to set up my local computer to match as closely as possible your hosted environment. I am planning on using XAMPP. Can you advise me on what Apache, PHP and MySQL versions and setting I might use on my computer for testing that might most closely match your hosting environment?

Thanks in advance,

Hi John,

I can see based on the notes on your account that you were able to get in touch with our Support Team, but I still wanted to answer your question here in the Customer Community center in case anyone else has a similar question.

If you <a href='' target='_blank'>log into your cPanel</a> and look in the left navigation, it will list the version numbers. For example, my testing account currently says:

Apache version: 2.2.21
PHP version: 5.2.17
MySQL version: 5.0.92

Let us know if you have any further questions, we're more than happy to help!

- Brad
