If you want to build website, and you don't want to spend time to set Apache for PHP and MySQL support, which package you like best, and why : 1. XAMPP 2. PHPTriad 3. ApacheTriad 4. any else I definitely like XAMPP, since it have many add-on features like statistics and eAccelerator.

I've been enjoying XAMPP lately. It even has been running fairly well on Vista for me. I used to manually install PHP/MySQL/etc but it started to get a little time consuming on my part and would be frustrating after you fell far behind in releases of PHP and MySQL, so it's sure nice to use something that makes it nice and easy to install and run effectively on a testing environment.

I tried installing them separately but couldn't setup PHP. Then I tried WAMPP (XAMPP for Windows) and still couldn't set PHP. Alas, the solution was EasyPHP, with Apache, PHP, MySQL, PHPmyAdmin and SQL Lite. It sets up the root of localhost and a test database by itself. Just run one program and you have all those running. Its very Easy! But I think its Windows exclusive. Search SourceForge for confirmation.
