first be sure you have activated the curl-extension in your php.ini file.
After that get the cacert.pem file from curl – Extract CA Certs from Mozilla and safe it o your computer. i saved it into my php-directory. after that edit php.ini again and modify the following entry to point to the .pem.file:
[curl] ; A default value for the CURLOPT_CAINFO option. This is required to be an ; absolute path. curl.cainfo = "C:\php\php80\cacert.pem"
First of all download the PHP-Version you want to install. In my case it will be the PHP 7.3 x64 Thread Save versio. This is the link to the download section on php.net: https://windows.php.net/download#php-7.3 In my case i downloaded the ZIP-file of VC15 x64 Thread Safe (2020-Oct-27 16:52:12). Unzip the ZIP archive to a new folde which will be your php installation folder. So choose wisely 🙂 I used c:\php\php73 for that. After you have unzipped the PHP-Archive you need to locate the file php.ini-development and rename it to php.ini.
Open the php.ini file in any texteditor and change the extension_dir settings to the choosen directory, followed by an /ext. In my case its c:\php\php73\ext. Or you can set it like below:
; On windows: extension_dir = "ext"
After that you need to add your path to the php-directory (in my case: C:\php\php73) to the Windows PATH variable. Search for “PATH” in the Windows Search-Bar to edit the environment variables.
Search in the system variable for the Path entry and edit this to add your PHP-path
After you have added your line click ok on all Windows to save your settings
To verify everything worked correctly open your command shell by typing cmd into the windows search bar
and type php -v in your command shell. You shall get the version information of your php installation. And now everything is done.
The same procedure is for every other php version like 7.x or 7.4. To install php in different directories (in my case C:\php\phpVERSION) gives you the chance to use different php version on Command Line Interface by setting the direct pth to the executable CLI.
But the template is for 10x10x10cm and i want it BIIIIG! My version should be 38cm side length. This Box should then be illuminated by LED stripes and LED-powered light strings. A nice idea. So i redsigned the whole thing added some roundings to the 90° lines and made my template “Kangaroo style” 🙂
Lastly i cut some poplar plywood with a thickness of 3mm. And it took 5 rounds for the lasercutter to get through the material. And as described on Mr. Beam’s Homepage this lasercutter can cut poplar up to a thickness of 4mm and birch multiplex up to 3mm. So i thought: This will be a fast and nice project with the more stable birch wood. I was so wrong.
My lasercutter is cutting that bloody birch multiplex 3mm plate sind 25 hours now 🙂 Its the 35 time the laser is going around and around and around 🙂 I am cutting 10 Hours a day and it seems that 10 hours are similar to 1mm of cutted wood. I hate birch so very much, i ordered a bunch of poplar hoping those plates will arrive soon 🙂
But i want to know how birch multiplex 3mm is cutted, so i stay patient. Normally i demo-cut a few circles on a new material to check how many rounds a cut-through will take. But i forgot this totally. So now i have to wait until i can be sure everything is cutted through. After each cutting-session i open the lid and try to move the cutted pieces but thes still stay in place. Hopefully this gets to an end on the weekend 🙂
After that i will proceed the cut tests with a circle of 1cm and different speeds and power-settings, so i can provide the best setup for cutting birch multiplex with 3mm thickness.
In 2003 I wrote Romantic Moves. An album with 10 SynthiePop tracks and released on Jamendo 2006. Since I’m listed as an artist on the most popular streaming platforms and my latest album “Michael” was released there, I decided to put the older albums there as well. All albums will be remastered and added within one year. Some of them will have new covers, because the demands on resolution and quality of the cover start have increased in the last 20 years 🙂
