Setting up a WAMP under Windows Vista
Vista makes life more difficult for those of us that need Apache, PHP, and MySQL installed for development purposes (I wouldn’t dream of running a WAMP under Vista for production purposes). Here are instructions on how to do it for those that need it.
I hope that helps someone, because it’s the sort of collection of links I could have done with for the last day or two (kudos too to the authors, thanks for that!). I did try ZendCore, but it refused to work properly, crashing out on every attempt to submit a form in the bundled control panel, and failing to set up PHPmyAdmin. Poor show Zend, poor show - no link-love for you.
