I need to set up a WAMP package on Windows Vista.

I'm looking at:

http://www.apachefri...pp-windows.html

and also found:

http://www.easyphp.org/

What's the easiest way to install and setup a WAMP stack for Windows Vista please?

What do you use or recommend?

TIA

Thanks for your reply jaclaz.

Those different portable versions of apache look interesting.

I think I will be using XAMPP for now, as that seems to work very nicely.

I tried EasyPHP but could not get the services to start.

This is on Vista Home Premium 32 bit.

I found that XAMPP was the most easiest to install. With the others I could not get Apache to start.

The only thing is XAMPP requires UAC to be turned off to install or run it.

I'd rather not turn UAC off globally so I thought about creating a separate user - called xampp-devel - and then assigning the permissions to the installation directory (C:\xampp) and it's contents to this user. Would that work please?

TIA
