    If you just want to get a test installation set up on your PC, the easiest way to get up and running is to use one of the all-in-one installers, such as wampserver (Windows) or XAMPP (most platforms). Either will take care of installing compatible versions of PHP, Apache, and MySQL on your computer so that you can test locally (i.e. via "http://localhost/script.php").

    If using windows WAMP is definitely the way to go. Installs with good default settings and works "out of the box". Just put files in the www folder and you can access setting files and short cuts from the wamp icon in the taskbar.

    I should be using XAMPP or WAMP or VERTIGO if I am not very good at configuring the webserver
