I currently have PHP-5 installed but have not installed MySQL, Apache or PHP MyAdmin. I want to install these now.

Is there a good install package I can use for these. I have seen some that include PHP-5 and the others referred to above should I uninstall PHP-5?

Can someone please make a suggestion. I have seen several installers which do you recommend??

The best thing to do would be to uninstall PHP5 and install XAMPP package as it is designed for all included to work thogether. You can choose not to run filezilla or any other package entity if you wish.
