I use dreamweaver, and when I work on my PHP pages, I upload my pages to test them out.

I'm going to be traveling a lot, and I'm getting a laptop. I'll be without internet access for long stretches of time, but I would still like to be able to work on my dynamic pages.

Is it possible to somehow setup my laptop to allow me to work on my PHP pages and to test them out without internet access? That way, I can get all my pages tweaked how I want them, and when I do have internet access I can upload them to my server without having to worry about bugs.

there are many packages that provide you with local apache/php/mysql setups that will allow you to do exactly what you want. I'm not sure whether you're allowed to post links here, but my favorite is called WAMP. If you google it, it's the top listing.
