This is great for testing your web pages and PHP scripts on your local machine before uploading them to your web server. You can manually install every application separately or you can download a software package called Xampp, an easy to install Apache distribution containing MySQL, PHP and Perl. It is really very easy to install and to use - just download, extract and start.All software mentionned in this article are free and available through the website listed in the external links section at the bottom of the page. Also, because some of the files come in Zip format, you might need an unzipping program like WinZip or WinRar.
