I might be getting a PHP project. I'm a .Net/ SQL Server developer.

I know the PHP project has MySQL as the database.

What do I need to setup the code on my laptop? I think Apache?? not sure.

Is PHP very different from ASP.Net/VB.Net?

Do you work in a Windows-environment? In that case, a very useful tool is IB-server [http://ibsoftware.d2digitalmedia.com/ibserver/]. Contains Apache + PHP + mysqlserver, and is very easy to configure.

http://www.wampserver.com/en/download.php just download wamp from the URL ,it will install mysql, apache,php and phpmyadmin.Than you can start to develop your php projects from there.And if you are a .Net/ SQL Server developer it wont be hard to learn php-mysql
