    I have decided to start learning PHP. I got an account on Tripod UK but it is getting really annoying uploading to test things out.

    Is there any way I can set up PHP locally on my Windows XP system? Are there any security risks? Thanks! ;-)

    PS I'm very new to PHP so try not to speak too technically.

    As of right now I don't need to have my pages on the web. What do I put for network domain & server name? Would http://localhost/ do?

    Hmmm, Windows XP are risky by they own, not to mention with Apache Server, u can make partitions, that would be less dangerous
