You are setting this up on XP Home?? :whistling:

I am assuming this is strictly for local testing of PHP modules or local PHP pages?

While I normally would push for Apache, in this case you might want to install Xitami. It will probably configure itself easier on XP Home...

If this is for a webserver that will be internet accessible you will need to get it off of XP Home.

Absolutely... Linux is well suited for this and what I would suggest in the first place.

This might give you a heads-up on what to do/expect:
