    Some years back I heard a term (local server)in a web development organization where they had some software install on the comp & it use to prase the php & css for them to test the code.

    I wonder what software was it............can someone tell me about few choices freeware or demo trials.

    I need to edit the php code for my new site & want it to host the site on my local computer, so my computer acts as a host & a client.

    I am on win xp pro sp1.

    Since you are on Win XP, you can use the IIS server installed on your machine(or u can install it from your Win XP installer disk) .. another option is to download and install Apache Webserver from here , but before downloading and installing please read this.

    There are lotsoff Webservers available as of today, but i prefer the widely used webservers mentioned above.

    Have a nice time,

    Regards,

    Thanks for the correct answer, I was googling local server & not getting the right answer.
    The correct term is webserver.

    Found IIS on my XP disk & downloading the php to be installed.
    Thanks.
