Maybe you should explain what the problem is - or at least, what you're attempting to do?
It sounds as if you're wanting to run a php-server?

I've tried XAMPP. Hate it. If you want to learn web development without having to learn server technology, download and install AppServ. I linked you to an older version because the newer version uses the unfinished version of php6, which will give you trouble using certain calls, such as magic_quotes.

I found XAMPP extremely simple and I don't see what's better with AppServ. And without learning a limited amount about "server technology" you won't get anywhere.
BTW I found this newcomer: Zend Server Community Edition it's pretty sweet though a bit advanced; but it gives you a web GUI for PHP administration.

Well, I'm not really sure. I knew a good amount about server technologies before I even started learning PHP, but I didn't really have to worry about any of that until I started getting into some pretty advanced concepts, and even then there were other ways around doing what I was trying to do. That being said, you can view a server as a car, and the driver as the person developing in PHP. The driver doesn't need to know how the car works to be able to keep it on the road.

...until you run out of gas. That's of course, unless you have someone who maintains your car regularly (that would be a server administrator).
