How do I install apache on my laptop using OS vista

222 100+
Dear sirs,


Could you please provide me some information about apache web server.

Actually my goal is to design a form on my website that contain a submit button and textbox and each time I click on the submit button I would transfer all data in a database.

After a small research I saw that I have to install apache web server on my laptop and then learn PHP to do it .

Is apache is a good way to start ? if yes am I able to install it on my laptop ?

Yes you can install Apache on Vista. Just go to the Apache site and download the installer from there. Make sure you read the installation notes.
Have you installed the database already?

No I didn't yet.

Actually apache is a web server like IIS and I can use it to test my website thru my laptop


PLEASE CORRECT IF I AM WRONG

You are correct. This article has a more detailed comparison between the two.

Usually people choose one of two approaches.

Apache, PHP and MySQL
or
IIS, ASP, and SQL Server.
Choosing one of these combinations has the advantage of there being lots of help/examples available.
