Myths about Testing:


Myth: I must test using the same platform I plan to host on.

Fact:  You can test using ASP, dbQwikWebServer and MS Access and later deploy to a Linux server with PHP and mySQL.  dbQwikSite's X-gen (cross generation) technology makes this possible.


Myth:  If I want to test PHP script I have to install Apache, mySQL, PHP and more!

Truth:  If you have IIS Web Server installed you can install PHP support for IIS.  If however you are using dbQwikWebServer, then it cannot run PHP and you will need to install a web server which which can accept a PHP Script Support.


Myth:  Apache, MySQL and PHP require Linux (UNIX).

Truth: Apache, MySQL and PHP all have free versions available for download that will run on windows PC.
