    Can someone give me a very comprehensive guide/step-by-step to installing PHP/mySQL on my hdd so that I can run any PHP files from any directory on my computer?

    I do not want those all-in-one packages because I like to a manual installation myself.

    I'm always confused by various instructions found all over the web about dlls, php.ini, apache, pws and registry editing just to install PHP.

    I would really appreciate if someone give me a very simple step-by-step to getting what I need installed.

    Installing mysql is VERY easy - just download the Intel/Windows installation file from www.mysql.com and run it - then run WinMySQLAdmin (found in your mysql/bin directory) and it will start up the database for you and let you set the initial database access password.

    As for installing PHP and Apache there is an excellent tutorial on that right here:

    No point in me giving you a step by step installation guide when that link provides a better one than I could write anyway
