    OK I have a blog running on 2.3 with a slightly customised theme. I want to upgrade to 2.6.1 and change theme but want t get it all working before doing the live upgrade.

    Q: Is there an easy "all-in-one" package I can install on my laptop to test WP/theme without having to set up a server and install/config PHP and MySQL individually?

    This one works fairly well, and is easy to install and use:

    http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-windows.html

    The full version includes:

    Apache HTTPD 2.2.9 + Openssl 0.9.8h
    MySQL 5.0.51b
    PHP 5.2.6
    PHP 4.4.8
    phpMyAdmin 2.11.7
    FileZilla FTP Server 0.9.25
    Mercury Mail Transport System 4.52

    There is also a lite version that leaves out the FTP and mail server.

    Lite version Windows download link:
