    Hey

    I've been trying to configure apache 2 with windows XP Pro. But i can't seem to get it to work.

    So Anyone out there know how to configure it properly using XP pro?

    Or does anyone know of another program that i can use thats similar to apache but more user friendly?

    Thanks!

    If you want user friendly... Then why not use IIS6 that comes with Xp Pro...

    Best I've used... I hated going back to IIS5...

    Settin git up is really easy when you get used to it...
    Doing a serch for setting up IIS will get you pointed in the right direction...

    Most of the info will be on IIS5 and Win2k but 6 is very similar just easier...

    IIS 5.1 comes with XP Pro, you need windows .NET Server 2003 if you want IIS6.

    IIS6 is kind of a pain though, I cant get php to work in it :(

    I still find Apache to be very easy to use. All you have to do is install the software and your server is running.

    Then just forward a domain name to your IP and your set.

    I use www.no-ip.com for that. They redirect people from the domain to the IP. Plus they give free domain names.
