After unsuccessfully trying to get PHP on Windows and apache to work together I found this tool known as AMPPS :
Now it helps me install all these scripts like Joomla and Wordpress on the desktop itself so that I can modify and upload later.
Is this a safe tool ?
Its by the Softaculous guys and I have used Softaculous on my shared hosting account at WestHost.
Any opinions is welcome and would like to know if I should still try for another option for php on windows.
