Hi,

I have a wordpress site that ive been asked to create a local copy of and host on one of my windows servers.

I've install Xampp for windows onto 2008R2 server and i have a copy of the base site and its mysql db but im unsure as of what to do next.

Any tutorials or guides anyone can point me in direction of would be great.

thanks

I personally prefer to install php and mysql separately on windows 2008 R2:

mysql installation is very easy , just follow the setup wizard.
