Subject [users@httpd] Apache for local use only

Installation Question.
------------------------------
I wish to try out PHP and MySQL on my Windows XP PC. I read that Apache is the way to go and
one communicates with it as http://localhost/ to pick up HTML, etc on one's own PC.

Hence I have downloaded the Apache Windows binaries as apache_2.2.2-win32-x86-no_ssl.msi and
installed them.

As more or less expected from the FAQ, it won't run because of "Port 80" conflicts. Perhaps
with my PC-Cillin Firewall, or some other program.

But:
1) I don't want to lose my virus protection/firewall facilities
2) I don't have a domain name for the internet anyway
3) I only want to access the server from my own computer

What do I do next?

Thanks
Peter
