Apache server is really easy to set up on your local machine. You can
then install Perl, MySQL and PHP. This would allow you to have all
kinds of fun on your local machine.
The book PHP - Fast & Easy Web Development comes with a CD that
includes Apache, PHP and MySQL. Also has instructions for installing
all either on Linux or Windows OS. Really slick stuff. I tried
learning Perl and got really frustrated. PHP and MySQL is much easier
and as theFrank said - VERY FAST.
Check out the book here. It is a reall good beginners book on PHP.
