Need to install old blog locally, to recover old posts.

Hi guys.

I want to recover a few posts from my old blog that are backed up locally. But I just have the entire SQL database in one big text file.

Basically I'm going to have to install Wordpress locally, then install my old blog on to it so I can recover some old posts.

I'm guessing I'll have to install MySQL, stuff needed for PHP to work locally, and Apache. Am I right? How should I go about doing this?

I would have Googled, but I want to see what the geniuses here recommend ;)

I actually used that about a month ago, and it works incredibly. The best part I liked was their online documentation, which made it easy for me :)

If you need help, post back. Most likely Kunal, but I could try to help as well ;)

GL bro :)
