New user saying "Thank you XAMPP!"

Well, I just installed XAMPP for Windows and I am a happy guy!

After spending countless hours trying to get a WAMP installation up and running on my computer I had become stuck trying to get Apache (?) to serve up documents from my local folder to my Browser. Just wasn't happening. I had installed all latest versions of PHP, MySQLand Apache and had been using a couple of books- The Idiots Guide and one other- but no matter which tweaks I made to various ini and cfg files I was stymied.

Googling on the problem was only marginally helpful- until I came across Apache Friends and XAMPP. I uninstalled all of my previous WAMP components, downloaded XAMPP for Windows, installed it and now I am up and running. Great!!

I guess my next step is to install the Patch?

Then assign a password?

Anyway, I am glad I found this website and this community.
