When installing Apache, i get to the window that says, Server Information.

It asks for Network Domain ,Server Name and Administor's Email Address.

I'm not sure what to put in for each of these.  I'm on the school network.  I just want to use the server as localhost only the learn php.

Thanks for the help .......... :D

In the Network Domain and Server Name boxes type in localhost

For the administrators email you can put your email addy in or a duff email addy, eg admin@localhost

The email address wont be used for anythink.

Type in localhost for everything apart for email. Then once it is isnstalled you have to put it into your files somewhere. then create whatever files you want and paste it into the Document root. If you have your own domian name then fut that insted of loaclhost.
