Good question... I dunno what is the answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can answer it..
That is all included in the EasyPHP link that I provided and it is a 5 min install..
You could also take a look at apache2triad.sourceforge.net..
It is a complete apache web server for the local windows install with all the goodies precompiled and ready to roll..
I recommend firepages.com.au for the bundle software - they also have a perl & asp add on you could try...
Is there a program I can install so that I can test my programming on a local server prior to uploading it up on to my ISP. I saw a thread that mentioned this and I was wondering how to go about doing this?..
The component parts you'll need (if you don't want the package listed above), are.
1. To install PHP on your local machine.
2. Install MySQL.
3. Install PHP MyAdmin.
4. Install a web server. Most use Apache, but it's a large download, so I use Xitami (only 1Mb), works the same (www.imatix.com) and is much easier to install..
Hope this helps - Vger..
