    What operating system does your server run?

    If you're using Fedora Linux, you're in luck. Just run one of these commands:
    Code:
    sudo yum install drupal6
    sudo yum install drupal7
    If you're running Debian Linux, you're also in luck. Just run the command:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install drupal6
    I'm sure every popular distro of Linux plus FreeBSD and Solaris have it available for easy installation.

    If you're stuck with Windows, I'm sure there's a way, but I don't know it.

    You need to install some form of local server - if you're on Windows use WAMPP or XAMPP, if you're on mac you can use MAMPP or Linux you can use XAMPP or LAMPP - there's plenty of choices. This software comes automatically with php, mysql and apache (and other useful tools such as phpmyadmin for your databases).

    If you install one of these then I can walk you through an install

    There are several approaches you can take for setting up a local server. You could:

    Manually install Apache, MySQL, PHP, etc and configure it yourself.
    Install such an environment automatically using a special package, such as DAMP, WAMP or MAMP.
    Use a virtual machine to set up your server in its own environment, even with a different operating system. See Quickstart, DrupalPro, Drupal-up, or Aegir-up for examples of fully loaded development VMs that can be run on any operating system.

    I have also problem with installation of Drupal Commons on my local server. Install script runs very slowly - it takes 10-15 minutes and only show me Database configuration screen - then stalled.

    1) I am assuming you have WAMP Installed already, if not, first proceed to wampserver.com and download the latest version. Once installed, launch it, type http://127.0.0.1 on your browser, and make sure you see the default screen. And just in case your post#80 is already used for something else, here is a guide to changing WAMP servers default port.

    2) Download Drupal - I'm using the v7.14 .zip version. Unzip into a dir at: C:\wamp\www, for example: C:\wamp\www\drupal - where drupal is the main directory containing all the drupal files.

    3) Create a database in WAMP using PHPMyadmin. Make sure you have the following info ready: database name, username and password.

    4) To begin installation, type: http://127.0.0.1/drupal. You should see a page displayed similar to the below. By the time we finish, all the processes at the left hand side must have a green-check mark.
