All you need to get them working is the installer files,

to get apache working just download the latest from www.apache.org

then download and install MySQL from www.mysql.com

the database server and web server are completly seperate from each other, so there is no need to configure anything to do with MySQL in the apache server.

do you plan to use a language such as PHP (there will be some setup needed there) or are you planning to try to use action script for everything, including database connections?

what if you just browse to http://localhost

do you see the apache test page, or do you see the root of your webserver folder?


either way there are a few things that you can check in the httpd.conf file...


the first is called DocumentRoot, this is located oin section 2 of the file.

and should be in the format

DocumentRoot "d:\websites"

the next thing to look out for is

<Directory "d:\websites">

this is the part where you set what you can and cannot do inside of your webserver
you se allowoveride to set who or what can ignore the settings that you put in this section. you have the section

Order allow,deny
Allow from all

to deny people access to your website you just put addresses in...
eg,
deny 192.168.0.2

I hope that helps! sorry if you hate forums, but I'm at work so I can't talk on messenger.

well i did all that stuff and i have a question: the d:/websites, is that mandatory or can you set it as anything you want?

and also i misunderstood the part about the "this is the part where you set what you can and cannot do inside of your webserver
you se allowoveride to set who or what can ignore the settings that you put in this section. you have the section." can you post that again i didnt quite catch the phrase.

also i see the root of the webserver folder when i just type in local host. is this god or bad??

the d:\websites isn't at all mandetory, it was just an arbitary example (and the best one I could think of to be obvious involving the least keystrokes!)

when I say you set what people can do, I mean you can block certain people, password protect directories stuff like that...

though you may do best to look at the apache documentation to learn how to do that.
