I use WAMP, under some instruction from DJ at first, but I find it very good. As he said. Both do the same thing.

wamp is not difficult to install , another is easyphp they all do the same job just admin is different in each, a queestion of choice.
my favourite was apache2triad but sady there has been no upgrade for some time so a dead horse really ow

Thanks to you all, I have now installed WAMP successfully. I think the problems my colleague had was that she was running Vista Home Premium and we read somewhere in a forum afterwards that WAMP does not install well on that operating system.

i reckon it was a config issue. I use Vista HP and never had a problem
