I am preparing to build my first dynamic website and was hoping to set up a testing server on my own computer. I have XP Home Edition, found out that I need XP Pro in order to do this.
Does anyone know if it is possible to safely set up a testing server on an XP Home machine or is there some other way to set up a testing server?
I have ColdFusion MX on my machine and could use that, but the server used by the company I'm designing the website for is a PHP/MySQL server.
I would appreciate any suggestions.
