geek question

I can't be online 24/7 and the transfer rate to my webspace is kinda slow. Is there some (easy) way to simulate server-side php stuff on my PC?

Install Apache and PHP. Head to your local Barnes & Noble and they should have a PHP Visually book. The first 3 pages show how to install Apache and PHP on a windows machine. Most of it is photos, so it's easy to remember.

I've always been told.. I think it's a Sams book.. Apache, MySQL, and PHP. Ahhh I think this is the book I was thinking of. It looks the same, anyway.

But I definately agree with xoder's solution.. Apache and PHP, and if you need it MySQL.. they're funfunfun! Not that I've ever installed it myself.. not in Windows or on a Mac, anyway. Actually, Gentoo installed it for me on my linux box.. so.. technically I have no clue what you're in for. ;)

Heh. I love it. A linux install of a suite of programs that is much simpler than the windows one. Happy days are here!

I've done it in Windows, and it wasn't too bad - at least, not if you don't think editing Apache's human-readable configuration files (like the Apache and PHP online docs tell you to) is bad.

PHP 5 In Easy Steps is the book I was thinking of

Yea, that's what I'd suggest too. You don't have to be on the internet to connect to a server that's on your own computer ;) localhost power!

I, obviously, have no idea. But you need a real post. 8-Þ You're worse than me.
