    Easy way out

    OK, after hours of trying to edit httpd.conf and php.ini I give up! Is there any way to get PHP and Apache (and preferably MySQL, but I have done that myself a few times) set up and configured in ONE download for Windows XP? I'm trying to do a PHP/Apache setup to replicate a hosting scenario and to learn about how the two interact. If there's no easy way I'm just going to install PHP on IIS.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I think http://www.firepages.com.au has something that will setup all of those for you on windows.
    Remember to turn off IIS if it's on once you've installed

    I didn't have any problems getting Apache, PHP, and MySQL up and working together. It's all in the on-line documentation. If you need any help, feel free to contact me, though I'm sure seanf is the best person to ask. I have used firepages before, however, and if you're content with something that'll pretty much self configure, then more power to 'ya. It's a good product.

    I just wanted to know if there was a one-stop type download so I wouldn't have to waste many more hours editing a bunch of .conf files. The easier for me the better, especially 'cause I'm just learning Apache. Thanks for the info though, and I'm sure I'll be back in the PHP forum more often.
