Localserver

Can someone recommend a local server that can run the latest edition of Virtuemart? I want to run Joomla on my local PC.

I use Easyphp on Windows. It installs the Apache webserver, php v5 and MySQL v 5. It's now at version 2.0b1

The address for info is: http://www.easyphp.org

You can download from Sourceforge:

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=14045

After installing and running the program you just put Joomla sites into a subdirectory folder and access them via "localhost" in the browser.

A good package.

I recomend using XAMPP
