I've had a search around the forums and can't seem to find an answer to this so I apologise if this has been covered before.
I want to set up a testing server for php and mysql and wondered what is the best way to go about this? How do I install php and a testing server on my pc? I've just found out that Windows Vista doesn't ship with IIS for server testing and wondered is there an alternative, or how can I do this? Is it easier to use my laptop which has XP pro installed?
From what I see php and mysql is the most popular combination in use at the moment so I assume this is the best way to go?
