Do you need an installer?

Just install apache using their installer, which adds it as a service in windows. From there, download and install PHP... assuming, of course, that's the 'p' in 'wamp.' Final step, just add a the line to the http.conf file so that apache recognizes PHP. (It's part of the PHP tutorial...)

He also needs mysql, which means that needs to be configured as well, which is why we have WAMP installers. No?

I've tried a couple. I use WinLAMP these days. I find that it's kept up to date better than some others.

This tutorial saw me through a while back. It was relatively easy, and I didn't end up with all the screwy settings that all-in-one installers try to force on you.

That said, you might like apache2triad.

WAMP5 has a new release bundled with Apache 1.3.31, PHP5.0.0, SQLitemanager, MySQL 4.0.18 & Phpmyadmin that looks interesting for development on a Windows box.
