I have already setup ampps and xampp on a stand alone computer (Trying to see which one is better). I also have already installed a opensource accounting program (Akaunting) within the ampps localhost (Apache). When I try to install the akaunting program within xampps, it gives me a error message that (2) of the php extensions need to be upgraded. I also noticed that the mysql file extensions for the akaunting data base tables are ".ibd"
Here is what I need to have done. 1.) I need to have the akaunting software installed in the Xampp "LocalHost", and delete the "Ampps - Local Host", 2.) I have a separate microsoft access data base file ".accdb" microsoft access 2007 on a difference computer on the same local network and I need to setup a odcb data link, to the mysql database files for the akaunting software mentioned in 1.) If the .ibd database (sql) files for the akaunting software cant be linked to my .accdb file, can the .ibd files be converted to a different file type then relinked to the akaunting software and then to my .accdb file.
.. Later down the road I need to add some additional table field areas to the Akaunting database and then also add them to the akaunting screens when appear on the web for the customer. Custom field areas.
