I assume you are using windows, so:

If you do not wish to go through the hassel of installing php, mysql and apache just download this program Easy-PHP

http://www.easyphp.org/?lang=en

really easy to install.

comes with latest edtion of php, mysql and apache i think... but it has phpmyadmin.

really nice.

http://www.foxserv.net :)

All-in-one package like EasyPHP, but I find FoxServ much better. Apache/PHP/MySQL all preconfigured and working well :)

I use Easy-PHP as well, although one problem is that they don't update often and the software really isn't that up to date, and the support stuff is in French.... I installed Easy-PHP and then reinstalled php and apache, overwriting the ones that came with Easy-php.

Add an "e" to the "serv."
