I am trying to set up a webserver on an XP pro machine to develop php / mysql technologies. I am going round in circles setting all this up and configuring so I am going to deal with this step by step. I have read many articles and books but still haveing troubles.
 I have apache installed on my laptop which appears to work fine (version 2.063) although the root directory is C:\webserver\Apache2\htdocs. Can I change this to C:\InetPub\wwwroot ? if so where do I need to make changes so that I will see my phpinfo test page displaying correctly once stored in C:\InetPub\wwwroot. My apache is running alongside IIS and so is listening on port 8080.

You need to open up the apache conf file, c:\webserver\apache2\conf\httpd.conf

At the very bottom you might have some VirtualHosts update the DocumentRoot to C:\InetPub\wwwroot and restart Apache.

If you don't have any virtualhosts paste this at the bottom of the file and restart apache.

<VirtualHost *:8080>
    DocumentRoot C:\InetPub\wwwroot
    ServerName localhost
    ServerAlias localhost
</VirtualHost>
