I'm in the process of setting up a testing server for mysql/php on my xp home machine.

What are the security implications of doing this? Presumably whilst apache is running I am effectively a server on the net?

I've installed apache, php and mysql - is there any specific security measures I should follow before using.

Thanks,

Chris

No security implications. Your Apache server will not be live on the net unless you configure it to be. The Listen, Bind and Port settings control this and they are commented out by default.

Have fun with it!
