I’m currently setting up a home off line web development environment and tried Xampp – I got stuck and the online help didn’t help…so I switched to WAMP and it’s going ok so far.
I’m going to use this post to add links that I find useful along the way
Creating multiple virtual hosts
This allows you to have several sites in the one location accessed from your WAMP server via Apache. I read and followed several guides from blog posts that didn’t resolve the problem, before finding one that works.
