I’ve just spent the evening upgrading my local copy of Apache and PHP to versions 2.1 and 5.1 respectively. (Yeah, I know, I’m a real party animal). Anyway, it took just a couple of hours thanks to a great online tutorial by Edward Tanguay. It takes everything step by step, explaining each option that needs to be done in order to get your local webserver running php pages locally. Check out the comments for any unforeseen errors.
