Is an Apache server in a linux VM a viable option?
I suppose it would be...a VM in a VM...never tried it before. Even then, it'd have to listen on another port number which would be awkward.
Unless you meant another VM, in which case I'd rather spare the extra expense/hassle. If it was high traffic, I might agree, but it's not. Besides, I don't have time to learn 'nix.
Not in the least. I should probably clarify why I didn't use web developer...In the interview, I asked him (as a test) if WordPress used php. He was only 85% sure it was...doesn't get into the code much I guess. Using a fancy WYSIWYG editor/framework to arrange content doesn't make you a developer.
After the latest Windows Updates (Your WIN 10 installation is about to expire - or some such nonsense)
my File Explorer now shows that I have a CD drive though I can't see it, touch it, taste it, or smell it.
The size of my machine is a awe inspiring 3"X3"X1.5" - where could this device be hidden?
Nope - still can't see it.
[But I did get a new icon for it ]
Ha, another twist on Windows 10 and optical drives.
In my case my home machine permanently indicates my optical drive as an "unknown device" but I can play CD/DVD content, burn discs etc... Windows explorer and device manager refuse to recognize it as an optical drive though, as long as it works its fine by me but it is definitely weird.
