I want to learn PHP. Can anyone tell me how to configure PHP, MySQL and Apache? Is there any software that will automatically do this stuff?

    I have to agree with Tim, XAMPP is the way to go and it's the tool I've used for PHP testing ever since I discovered it. You can see a step-by-step process of how to install and set it up here: //

    Haven't tried AMPPS that Burhan suggested, but maybe that's worth a look as well...

    Xampp is very good.. But you should also look into it has a easier Web interface for management for beginners than XAMPP

    Actually there are a lot of reference that you can find in internet. There are from neostrada and from [Broken URL Removed] for beginner. But if you just want a simple one you can use XAMPP as Brookes said.

    Hi Shaurya,

    There is an awesome little bit of software that makes this process really easy, called XAMPP. You can get it at

    Once you've installed it, it's a simple case of turning on the services you want with a couple of clicks. I recommend reading the documentation just to get your head around it as there is a small learning curve, but I think it's exactly what you're looking for. I've used it extensively in the past on both Windows and Linux for testing out WordPress installs and plugins, it really is a great bit of software!

    Good luck :)
