    PhpDev
    www.firepages.com.au

    It's a preconfigured bundle, which includes:
    Apache Server
    PHP
    mySQL
    Perl (You can download an update for phpdev called mod_perl)

    +

    PHP Web Site
    Invision Board
    PhpMyAdmin


    I've got some trouble hosting public, but connecting to localhost works fine to me.

    PS: Their forums suck. They're out of webspace and now I can't post a thing there

    Yep apache2triad is a good one to. I found it a bit hard to use, for beginners I would have to say netserver, but if your really into it then go for the above mentioned.

    I've just downloaded and tried NetServer (the one bigguy said) and it's great, really easier to use.

    Well To Make A Professional Server You Need A Linux Box And Try To Install Apache PHP AND mysql Independently Its Will Make Your Server More Secure And Fast And If you want To Public To access You Server You need Atlease 1 Mbit Internet Connection

    most linux distros (redhat/fedora, mandrake, suse, u/k/buntu, freebsd(unix!) and many others) all come with apache in the files along with php/per/phython and many more programming languages allready set up, also the web server is already set up (if you have selected it off the list of modules you could install on it)

    but a much easier way would be one of the installers... makes life much easier

    No just a personal server for forums and such that can be served off your computer.
