    You first need to start apache. Once started it should be a matter of going to http://localhost/

    How did you setup apache? Did you use an installer package?

    For others to access your apache server you would need to let users know your ip address some how. I think the easiest way is to use http://www.no-ip.com/

    for local access on the network ... find the ip address of your machine on the local network (type ipconfig in a cmd prompt)

    then go to that in a browser http://192.168.0.?
    you will also need to know that local IP to set up port-forwarding in your router so that the outside world can see it via your no-ip account
    resistance is...

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)
