    Lightbulb Web Server?


    Does anyone know how I can get an Apache web server running? I'm used to Windows ME and when I click on start server it will not start the web server. I am also going to run MySQL and PHP.

    I am running Windows XP Professional

    Thank you.

    You have to configure your http.conf file. It explains all the steps you need to do. If you want a simple local server for testing, try xitami.
    Still don't know how to do a "Hello World"?

    I haven't had any problems installing apache on win9x/2k/xp.
    You just donwload the msi and follow the steps, and thats it. What errors (if any) you get when try to run apache?
    And you know I mean that.

    One problem I had when installing Apache, mySQL and PHP to WinXP was that I tried to install everything in Program Files. If you let everything install to default path, you will have much better luck. I think it was mySQL that really complained...
