So here's what I want to Do...

I don't quiet know how to articulate this, but what i want to do i make i guess a MySQL or an Apache server so that I can play with phpBB and wordpress before ACTUALLY uploading them to my Domain's Hosting Server. Can anyone help me out with this?

Okay, So Update. I downloaded WAMP and copy and pasted the extracted phpBB files to the www dir(which to me represents my Domain providers Storage), I've opened "http://localhost/install/index.php?mode=install&sub=database" in windows explorer and it brought me to the Install process for a phpBB forum, Now I'm Caught:




I'm guessing it wants me to set up a new SQL database to store the forum in but i don't know how to make a new one or how to link them. i can get to the MySQL console if that means anything. Also, Windows XP SP3 in Virtual Box

Just run the setup, fill out all the required fields, and it will set up the database etc for you automatically.
