Just like the topic says, I've found the need to do a little coding on my own computer, thus a need to install me a webserver, just looking for advice on getting started....

Here is what i'm thinking of doing, let me know if you disagree with something or have something to add

* Apache 1.3.x - might 2.0 be better? or buggier?
* PHP 4.2.3 - will install with the Apache module dll, rather than the CGI binary (php.exe)
* Probably will install MySql aswell just install it's wanted later...
* Don't really need SSL right now, maybe later...
* Do I want to install Perl? Would you?

I was glancing over the install.txt of PHP to work with apache, and it isn't very percise...

quote:
Installing PHP on Windows with Apache 1.3.x

Now that version 4.1 introduces a safer sapi module, we recommend
that you configure PHP as a module in Apache.

To do this, you should move php4ts.dll to the windows/system (for Windows 9x/Me)
or winnt/system32 (for Windows NT/2000/XP) directory, overwriting any
older file. Then you should add the following three lines to your Apache
conf file: (swap c:/php/ for your PHP install path)

LoadModule php4_module c:/php/sapi/php4apache.dll
AddModule mod_php4.c
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php



What file do I want to add that too, and does it matter where in the file?

i was thinking proably "httpd.conf" but wanted to know for sure, does it need to go in more than one? there are a few files that refer to config like "access.conf" "httpd.default.conf" "srm.conf" so any help with this is most appreciated

Thanks in advance...

Another good bundle (besides FoxServ) is phpdev...

If you decide to install everything separately, I would suggest the following:

- Apache 1.3.x + PHP 4.2.3, because PHP won't have complete support for Apache 2, until version 4.3.x; It can be installed together with Apache 2, but only on Windows, under *nix it's a real pain to compile everything together.

- MySQL can be installed later (when you need it for the first time).

- I doubt that you'll need SSL support in Apache on your local computer, especially because valid SSL certificates cost money.

- If you plan to develop CGI scripts in PERL, you can install ActivePerl from ActiveState. Configuration is simple, you just need to change a few lines in Apache configuration file.

As far as Apache configuration is concerned, everything goes in httpd.conf, other *.conf files are empty and are no longer used...

I use phpDev that mr.maX suggested. It is VERY easy to install and use. Had to do a little work getting it to do SSI but with the help of these guys, I got it working.

I LOVE MY PHPDEV! Can't thank mr.maX enough for hooking me up with that one.

@ mr.maX, thanks a lot for the info and help, I will look into that phpdev aswell. I also installed all everything separately on another system and that is working great too, got MySQL 3.x.x, php 4.2.3, apache 1.3.x up and running fine

@ KMabry, I installed foxserv v3 liked suggested and it's just great, works very well, I had to upgrade the MySQL to make it work with the proper configuration but overall it's a very nice package, thanks for suggesting it

Not sure how I will decide to end up, but since they are all installed separately I can use them all simultaneously and test them to see what I like best

Again thanks for your help guys, most appreciated
