I need a simple local httpserver/PHP system installed on my machine. I've downloaded a PHP package that easies this process by configuring itself on a few web servers. Just what I need for now.
Unfortunately IIS is feeding me blank pages for some reason I can't figure out. So, I'm wanting to disable this service again and move on to another local web server solution that is easy to install and maintain without forcing me to waste time learning it.
A quick perusal revealed a few names. I need your advice in what would be the best choice, considering I'll be wanting to learn PHP for server side scripting and database access. This is for a windows XP machine
Xitmami - worries me. Links to documentation pages all return 404
Sambar - Was this discontinued?
Apache - Seems complicated to setup and maintain based on some script language I don't want to learn.
