That is fine, but I am not sure what help that I will be able to offer.  ME is not the best
a desktop let a lone running a web server.  Well at this point the first thing that needs
to be
done is getting it installed and being able to see the test page that Apache offers.

Follow this link, unless you see a page like this one, it is NOT installed. 

Before you move forward, you need to be able to type http://localhost into a browser
and see the page from the link above.  Nothing else matters until you see this

OK if you do not get a message from Apache when you go to localhost
then you might have other issues to deal with. Most of the people here on the list have stated
that they have no luck using Apache on ME. Have you thought about changing to a newer O/S??

the source and compile, do you get to see the coding?? (silly question). --G

is an accumulation phase into a database, then a display phase. I was working in FrontPage
with ACCESS DB when a friend revealed that not everyone has ACCESS. Furthermore, my computer
would have to have server duties. Hence, MySQL, PHP & Apache combination is a vast improvement.
So what do I want with Apache? I want to learn it and use it!! Ditto PHP. SQL I think I can
handle. --G
