My name is Paul Howlett and Iâm a senior developer at Mad Media Labs
I have written an article with all the file downloads etc that you need, in order to get your own local server going, and start developing feature rich, database, driven websites.
I cover the basics of positioned XHTML / CSS, starting PHP and MySQL development, and even through in some more advanced Jquery, to make your front end development look snazzy.
I hope you enjoy it
