I have read a few good suggestions as to some software people use and have downloaded some as a result of it.  So I am thinking... let's let everyone know what we are using so they can check out these great tools too.

Some Programs I use

For Windows
MySQL Control Center - Available at sourceforge
IBServer - for testing on a local machine - Available at sourceforge
Crimson Editor - nice little editor for editing php
Netscape composer - comes with the Netscape 7.1 full install
Netscape - way better browser than IE

On Linux
Webmin - great for admining your linux server if you have one
and of  course Netscape again

So what tools are everyone else using.  All the ones I mentioned above are FREE.   Note I found out about IBServer here and installed it on my laptop to test changes before putting them up live and breaking things.

First of all, I'm on a Dual G4 mac. . .  OSX Panther (10.3.x) which really kicks arse!

For terminal SSH control, I use the OSX terminal and Jellyfish as my bookmark/security holder to link to my Linux box.

For code, I'll use BBedit or Dreamweaver MX in codeview which works fairly well for me.

If I'm in a pinch via remote I'll just pico scripts from my linux shell. Thinking about running fedora real soon.

Then if I'm not in Dreamweaver, my FTP program of choice is Fetch.

So, here's the basic rundown

Mac OS X:
Macromedia Dreamweaver (coding and FTP, live testing and graphic design)
BBedit (coding)
Terminal (ssh to Linux shell)
Fetch (additional ftp software)
Safari (my browser of choice)

Linux:
Pico (of course)
PHPMyAdmin (for all my SQL needs)
vi

I use Dreamweaver MX for coding, FTPing (I've been using WS_FTP_LE if I just need to FTP something quick, if I'm not in Dreamweaver).
That sits on a W2K box. I just use my web host for the testing server (I do my testing live...can't be bothered to set up a separate testing server), and use PHPmyAdmin for SQL stuff on that end.
Thats it.

I'm running WinME (It works great for me, but crud for most people) I also have RedHat linux installed, but its being weird atm.

Text Editor: TextPad (I'm going to checkout Crimson Editor)
FTP: WS_FTP
SQL: phpMyAdmin
I tried to run a testing server on various machines in my network but they all stuffed up so i test live online.

WinME (local AND server - don't beat me, it's working better than anyone eXPected). Controlled by ReDialer (cheap but mighty tool to control connection, IP-address, traffic, time, and running programs). RedHat9 installed on both machines but I can't make friends with it so I don't use it.

Coding (HTML & PHP) with Notepad or Wordpad (depends on file size); testing with Internet Explorer, Netscape, and sometimes Conqueror; PHPMyAdmin for MySQL.
LeechFTP is used for updating nicegames.de. For my own server I don't need FTP, also there is WarFTPD (free FTP server for windows) running for external FTP-access. All programming results can be watched LIVE in "realtime" on my server because I'm coding and testing directly on my server's hard drive. Smiley

Windows XP Pro

MySQL CC (Most DB stuff)
Access 2003 (reporting)
UltraEdit (Php/minor changes)
NuSphere (Mostly for Php - great for debugging)
WSFTP (site management)
cPanelX (general site config/management)
SecureCRT (SSH)

NuSphere still has a few bugs but it's good for debugging and editing and supports local/remote debugging (you can lock down remote debugging)

I use EasyPHP running under Win98SE to test script local on my PC, PHPEdit V0.6 to write and SmartFTP to upload onto my server.

EasyPHP comes with: Apache 1.3.27 - PHP 4.3.3 - MySQL 4.0.15 - PhpMyAdmin 2.5.3

You're all a bunch of girls Smiley

vi, the mysql UNIX shell client, and Apache.

And dos2unix to convert all the horribly formatted stuff that everyone else writes in Notepad/etc and that doesn't word wrap right when it gets to UNIX.

dos2unix is a great tool. I use it quite a bit myself. Since I travel so much, I never know what sort of computer I'll be coding on when I'm not in the studio (MacG4dual1.47).

I think everyone should have a copy of it in their arsenal

And bloody hell... Since our last "Pico vs. VI debate". . . I've started to use VI more often. I don't particularly like it anymore than PICO, but if I'm not going to be spending a lot of time editing, I like just jumping in and out of VI.

Still, if it's something I'm going to be staring at for a while, I prefer the feel of PICO.

I must strongy say that thus far ConText has beaten any other editor for the time being.  it actually shows you if you close a tag in php.  if you put the curser next to a (   it turns red, and the one that closes for it ) turns red too, making it easier to not get confused.  plus it has colors for different things.  its just really awsome.  ive used it for a year now.  I dont even use dreamweaver because of it.  hell its the onlyu program that does not crash on windows ME!
