[resolved] WP Install w/o remote server? (Read: Localhost) (3 posts)

    I'd like to design my own wordpress theme, but don't want to install WP on a remote server and deal with the FTP upload of changes, etc.

    I figure I'm going to need:
    1. web server software
    2. sql server software
    3. php software

    Can anyone point me in the direction of what I need on a Windows XP machine to essentially do my work as http://localhost/ instead?

    Thanks!

  3. The usual solution is XAMPP, which is an all-in package. I prefer this one that Podz suggests:

    It doesn't have to go on a memory stick - it's just as happy on a hard drive. No real installation, works nicely.

    (Just noticed there are two on offer now - I use the first one, WOS.)
