i have a winxp pro machine that will serve as my development enviornment.
the production enviornment will be a linux box running Apache, MySQL & PHP.
i also wish to use AMFPHP to mimick Flash Remoting.
1. Because I'm on WinXP Pro is it best to use IIS, Apache or both?
2. Is it better to install Apache, MySQL & PHP individually (manually) or is it better to download a package like ApacheFriends/Apache2Triad (auto-install).
3. Should i set up another machine on my network to act as my server since i heard that it was not a good idea to run apache, mysql and php locally?
very confused.... could use some clarification
