Re: Do I Need a Server?
By the way there are now windows ports of lighttpd and nginx to use on a local PC for testing too for a faster, lighter footprint. But their installs are not as robust as xampp or wamp though and not for novices. Also since they don’t use .htaccess but their own proprietary system you have to hand write the rules for pretty permalinks.
xampp can be installed and running in under a minute flat, it’s amazing.
