installing apache+php+mysql with my app ??


Anyone have any experience / ideas / links related to building an install application that installs apache with php and mysql.

You're welcome. I tried Foxserv a few years ago when it was fairly new and some things weren't working all that well. Its claim to fame is that it installs L.A.M.P. (well, minus the 'L') for you on Win32 transparently, but I had some problems with MySql. I'm sure some wrinkles have been ironed out.
