Installing Apache on Windows XP

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

I am new at this apache game, so please have some patience :-)

 

I want to install it to be able to run php locally.

 

In time, Ill set up a webserver, but that\'s not now!

 

I am looking for a good guide to install apache, and set it up to handle php.

A step by step walktrough.

 

Anyone know of any?

If your interested in just getting started to learn programming I would suggest downloading phpdev from http://www.firepages.com.au. I can install apache and php but why spend the time if I can just double-click. Learning all the nuances of installing apache and php is a skill in itself.

Well, the main reson was not to learn programming.

I wanted to test the php scripts that I have installed ( free once and paid for ) locally. I do not have any kind of dsl, so I pay by the minute to be online.

 

I also wanted to try to learn some apache at the same time.

 

This tool, is this a development tool?

What does it do? I looked at the site but it looks like a development tool.

And that is not what im looking for.

 

Thanks!

no it is just an installer, will install apache and php just by executing the file. And it\'s free, no spyware, no ads.
