First of all we will work with Apache2Triad, not EasyPHP. Now go to download and download Apache2Triad 1.4.3 from a mirror. (about 70.30 MB. I know its big but it will solve all of your problems)

After you downloaded the Apache2Triad double click on it and start the setup process.

Pic 1 ? First Screen

Then click the plus sign left of the ?create autostarting services? option.

Pic 2 ? Selecting autostarting services

Now UNCHECK all options except ?Apache service? and MySQL service? as shown in Pic 3.

Pic 3 - Editing autostarting services

Click ?Next?.

Now setup will ask you where to install Apache2Triad. Leave it alone and click ?Next?.

Pic 4 ? Selecting installation path

Now it will ask you the main password which you will use for all Apache modules. It will also be the password for the ?root? user in mysql. Write to ?Enter new password? section ?12345678?. (except quotes).
Enter the same password to ?Re-enter password? section.

Pic 5 ? Setting the main password

Now click ?Next?. It will show you the license agreement. Read it and if you agree with it click ?I Agree?.

Pic 6 ? License agreement

Now the installation will start. Just sit back and enjoy it

Pic 7 ? Installation starts

After installation is complete you will get this message:

Pic 8 ? Post configuration

Click OK.

Apache2Triad setup will do some processes so stay tuned. After that you will get this screen :

Pic 9 ? Confirming password

Enter ?12345678? without quotes and press ENTER. That must be the same password which we used before.

After that setup will do something again. Then you will get this message :

Pic 10 ? Reboot request

Don?t press OK until the following screen disappears!

Pic 11 ? The important screen

After it disappears you can press OK to reboot your computer. (now i?ll reboot too, so see u soon )

Ok now i?m back

You can check if your apache2triad works fine. Open your browser and type ?localhost?. If u get a screen like this everything is ok.

Pic 12 ? The relaxing screen

Ok. We have completed the installation of Apache2Triad.


First get pandora from this links :

Part #1:
Part #2:

Extract it to your desktop and run pandora.exe. You will get a screen that can make you scared. But don?t panic, it?s normal.

Pic 13 ? The ?hacked? message

Click OK and you will get another screen. Wait for 4-5 seconds and it will disappear.

Follow the instructions on the screen. I suggest you don?t change the installation path (default ?C:\Program Files\Project Pandora?).

After the installation PCW (Pandora Configuration Wizard) will open. Click ?Next? in the first screen.

In the second screen it will ask you username, password and DB (database) name. Leave them alone and check ?Use Defaults? option then click ?Next?.

Pic 14 ? PCW Step 1

In the next screen it will ask you something about your realm.

Pic 15 ? PCW Step 2

You can enter anything you want in first 2 boxes (Realm Name and Player Limit). Actually i don?t know what is MOTD for biggrin.gif . But we don?t need it. Now click ?Next?.

Now in this step you need to know your ?LAN IP?.

Pic 16 ? PCW Step 3

In order to learn your LAN IP follow the steps below:

- Click your start menu then select ?run?.
- Type ?cmd? in the run dialog box (without quotes) and click ?OK?.
- Now you are in command prompt. Type ?ipconfig? (without quotes) and press ENTER.
- You will get an output like this :

The important data is IP Adress section. Write down this ip adress.

Now close this window and go back to pandora configuration wizard. Change the Host Adress from to the ip adress that you wrote down. In my conditions it must be like this :

Now click ?Next?.

You will get a message that says configuration is done. Click ?Finish? to exit wizard.


Now we will prepare the pandora?s database.

First we need to create our database. Open your browser and type ?localhost/phpmyadmin? (without quotes).

Enter your username (root) , enter your password (12345678) , check ?remember my password? option and click OK.

Now you are in phpmyadmin.

In the ?Create new database? section, type ?pandora? as shown above and click ?Create?

Now you have an SQL database named ?pandora?. We don?t need phpmyadmin anymore so close it.

Now we will fill our database with pandora?s data.

Before doing this go to your pandora folder and open sql folder. open pandora.sql with Wordpad (this will take some time). in the edit menu select "replace".

enter the first box "DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1" (without quotes) and leave the second box empty. then click "replace all". save and close it.

Click your start menu and select ?run?. Type ?cmd? (without quotes) and press ENTER.

In command prompt type ?mysql ?u root ?p? (without quotes) and press ENTER.

Enter your password (12345678) and press ENTER.

After that type "use pandora;" (without quotes) and press ENTER.

Type the string that shown below and press ENTER.

MySQL will process the pandora?s database and it will make necessary changes. When it finishes you will get this :
Now we made our database. It?s time to make some configuration. You can close command prompt.

Now go to your pandora folder (C:\Program Files\Project Pandora). Right click to Pandora.conf and select ?Open with...? . In the program list find Notepad and click OK.

Make your configuration file equal to this (texts in red are the changes you need to change) :
# Project Pandora - Configuration file

# MySQL connection information - REQUIRED
# DatabaseInfo = "host;login;password;databasename" - password cannot be empty
# Defaults are: DatabaseInfo ="localhost,pandora,pandora,pandora"
Databaseinfo = "localhost;root;12345678;pandora"

# IP or DNS of the server (both logon and world).
# You need to set this to your external IP.
# Default: (localhost)
# Please note that if you want to have other people connect, you must set this to your IP Adresss
Host =
LogonServerPort = 3724
WorldServerPort = 3725

# Set up your realm name here, server will add this single realm to list
# Please Note the last option! 1 Sets it to use the configuration here, and 0 sets it to use the SQL configuration (Hence enabling multiple realms)
# RealmName = Name of the Realm
# RealmAddr = Address of Realm - This should be set to whatever your host is
# RealmPort = The Port for the Realm (default = WorldServerPort)
# RealmlistFromConfig = 1 - Use realmlist specified here, 0 - Use from 'realms' table in SQL database.
RealmName = "Test Realm"
RealmAddr =
RealmPort = 3725
RealmlistFromConfig = 1

# Logging detail level
# 0 = Minimum; 1 = Error; 2 = Detailed; 3 = Full/Debug
# Default: 0
# The higher this setting the more lag the server can experience
LogLevel = 3

# Packet logging for the worldserver
# Default: 0
#LogWorld = 0

# Packet logging for the realmserver
# Default: 0
#LogRealm = 0

# Maximum number of players in the world. Excluding GM's
# Default: 100
PlayerLimit = 2

# Message of the Day. Displayed at worldlogin for every user.
Motd = "Welcome to |cffff6060Test WoW|r server."
Now save it and close.

Go to your WOW directory. Open with notepad. Delete all the text in it and write ?set realmlist YOUR_LAN_IP? (without quotes).

YOUR_LAN_IP is your ip adress which we learned with ipconfig. In my condition i must write ?set realmlist (without quotes).

Save it and close.

Go to your pandora folder (C:\Program Files\Project Pandora). Extract the ?EasyPHP 1-8.rar? to your desktop.

Now go to your desktop and double click the ?EasyPHP1-8? folder. Right click the ?www? folder and select ?cut?.

Go to your apache2triad folder (C:\Apache2Triad). Right click on ?htdocs? folder and select ?paste?.

Now double click ?htdocs? folder then double click ?www? folder. Right click on the ?config.php? and select ?open with..?. In the program list select Wordpad (not Microsoft Word) and click OK.

Find these lines :
//Wow server settings.
$acct_db="wow_server"; //Name of the wow database.
$acct_host="localhost"; //Ip adres of the lud server.
$acct_user="ludmilla"; // DB username (mysql)
$acct_pass="ludmilla"; //DB Pass (Mysql)
//End of wow server settings
Change them to this :

//Wow server settings.
$acct_db="pandora"; //Name of the wow database.
$acct_host="localhost"; //Ip adres of the lud server.
$acct_user="root"; // DB username (mysql)
$acct_pass="12345678"; //DB Pass (Mysql)
//End of wow server settings

Now save it and close.

Open your browser and type ?localhost/www? and press ENTER. You will get this :

Now you can create accounts by clicking the ?Register now!? link.

Thats all. I hope this will help you.

Your apache probably fails to load because it is attempting to listen on an IP that is not owned by your PC. Search for the 'httpd.conf' file within your EasyPHP directory and look for two lines starting with 'Listen'.
These default to:

Change the '' to whatever your external IP address is, or remove it completely if you are just testing.
