This page describes how to install webserver Apache, database mySQL and PHP on Windows using WAMP. WAMP is a great webserver toolset to get phTagr running under windows with an ease.

Download WAMP

Download WAMP from their website. In time of writing, this was version wampserver2.2e-php5.3.13-httpd2.2.22-mysql5.5.24-x64 (64 bit version)

Install WAMP

Execute the WAMP installation file and follow the setup dialog. In the 7th step you are asked to enter your default browser. I've chosen Chrome.

After successful installation you can launch WAMP and you will see a green W in your tray icon bar.

Configure WAMP

To run phTagr we need to configure Apache. To have nice URLs we need the rewrite module. To enable it, click left on the green W icon in the tray icon and select the rewrite module under Apache / Apache modules.

Further we need PHP extension php_exif and php_zip under PHP / PHP extensions.

After enabling/disabling a module/extension in WAMP, WAMP restarts. The W icon becomes orange shortly. Further, the modules/extension list requires one or two restart/reloads to show the correct module/extension list. Do don't be bothered by WAMP if it does not show the correct list immediately.

Create Database

phTagr uses a mysql database for fast media selection queries. Therefore, we need to create a database before installing phtagr. Start phpMyAdmin via W tray icon.

Create a phtagr user with a database via menu Users / Add user. Please select Create database with same name and grant all privileges on user creation.

Download phTagr

Please install latest version of phtagr via website

Extract the ZIP file to C:\wamp\www directory.

Now open your browser with at localhost/phtagr and follow the installation instructions.

External Programms

For larger photos it is recommended to use convert.exe from ImageMagick. Please enter the full path with convert.exe in Dashboard -> System / External Programs / Path to convert like

C:\Program Files\ImageMagick-6.8.0-Q16\convert.exe

Please use exiftool to enable metadata write support.

Please use ffmpeg to enable video converting.
