I found a couple of rockin’ tutorials today:

How to install Apache on Windows

How to install PHP on Windows

How to install MySQL on Windows

Mmmm. Tasty. Now I can start translating this site into PHP while still using my XP as a development server.

    This is really useful, thank you! I've passed it onto the techy in the family who just took a sudden interest in your blog 🙂

    Perhaps PHPDEV is a good idea? It's all three in one package, preconfigured!

    Perhaps considering a move to a UNIX server is a better idea still.

    I do have a Linux server in the office, running RedHat 8 (soon to be upgraded to Fedora). That's what I use there for Apache. But at home I just wanted a setup that would run on Windows so I didn't need a second box. Previously I had been writing the PHP code and then uploading it to test it. A little inefficient, to say the least. That's when I figured I needed to be able to run PHP on localhost.

    Plus I like the idea of having to configure everything myself, or at least follow someone's step-by-step instructions to get the pieces working. It makes me feel like I understand what's going on a little better. If I installed on of those 3-in-1 packages it would work, but I wouldn't quite know how.
