Looking for a simple way to run PHP?

I don't know about you, but getting PHP up and running on a random development machine can be a pain. It's not PHP's fault... it's often the size and complexity of the web server. PWS is a monstrous download (30 Mb last time I tried) and Apache, while smaller, is still bulky and can be quite picky when attempting to get PHP up and running.

Solution worth considering: the free BadBlue web server is tiny (about 60K), installs in seconds, supports PHP (the PHP help page is at and, yep, it's free.

Check it out at if you need a quick solution to the web server problem.
