personal preference would be ubuntu as an OS

apache comes standard from memory, and mysql is a one line install.
wordpress install is also very simple.

Hi from  , Security point of view i would of say use LInux as Os

you can use anything , such as Centos, Fedora,DEbain or Ubuntu [ all are allmost same]

but if you are a windows Guy, then you can install apache in windows aswell without any problem.

NOw come to intalll :

if you install on Centos [ example]
Centos has a programm call yum

you just have to type : yum install htttpd, mysql-server,php,php-mysql

everything would be install automaticaly

for debain and ubutu, we got apt-get install. almost same

if you want to install in windows

then you need to install from .msi programm provided by apache,mysql and php

let me know which one you want, then will provide more info

Thanks fosiu,

Since we're used to windows will try that - just rmember last WAMP install have a few bugs perhaps due to existing software on the server but it's now a fresh install.
