    web server help

    Hi,

    i need a webserver that supports php, asp and mysql. i(the server is for my home computer, windows xp, it is just an environment i wish to setup to test functionality and scripts, no other person accept me will be accessing it).

    i had abyss web server which had instructions on how to set it up with php and asp, which i did and it worked perfectly, but today when i was testing out some asp scripts, i realised that the asp "program" that was used (activehtml) was only a trial and had expired! i am no win search of either a new FREE asp "program" which i can use to run asp scripts on my home server, such as activehtml OR i am looking for a new server (preferably free) that has asp, php and mysql support.

    anyone have any ideas??

    thanks

    You need to installed SQL Server for MSSQL support. That's available in PHP (you just uncomment one line in the php.ini to load up the module for it), but the server is rather pricey. If you want Access support, you can try ADOdb: http://php.weblogs.com/ADODB
