Windows 7: Web Server Software

Web Server Software

I need to install web server software on my computer so I can preview web pages before uploading them. It saves all of that unnecessary upload time. I used to run XAMPP with XP Pro SP3. But in looking to download it again, it doesn't mention 7 as being compatible. The last OS listed is Vista. I would imagine XAMPP is probably compatible with 7, but I was wondering if anyone had any info on this, or maybe another suggestion for free open source server software I could use with 7?

It is not exactly what you are asking about, but have you considered using Opera Unite? It has a web server function to serve pages directly from your computer, so I imagine that it has some way to preview them also. I don't know if it would allow you to upload them just anywhere though, but I imagine that could be done separately, if needed.

I don't need it to upload the pages, I use my editor for ftp transfers. I just want to be able to view the pages and make sure everything works before I upload. I forgot to mention it, but it also needs to support PHP. I'll take a look at the suggestions so far though. Thanks

I have installed and run xampp from a windows 7 machine. Worst case you could even run xampp inside of xp mode.

I may go back to XAMPP, but I'm looking at MS Web Platform to see if it will do what I need since it would probably integrate nicely with 7. But at least I know I can go back to XAMPP if I feel so disposed. Thanks again!
