    This is the version you should get: https://www.apachefriends.org/xampp-...-installer.exe
    It gives you
    Apache 2.4.23, MariaDB 10.1.16, PHP 7.0.9, phpMyAdmin 4.5.1, OpenSSL 1.0.2, XAMPP Control Panel 3.2.2, Webalizer 2.23-04, Mercury Mail Transport System 4.63, FileZilla FTP Server 0.9.41, Tomcat 7.0.56 (with mod_proxy_ajp as connector), Strawberry Perl 7.0.56 Portable
    From these you need Apache as the webserver.PHP 7.0.9 as a modern PHP version, MariaDB as the database, phpMyAdmin for "easier" database access, XAMPP control panel for easier service handling.
    Others I would not install for basic php testing.

    OpenSSL is if you need https
    Webalizer is server log file analysis program, But in localhost usually you have your errors displayed for you.
    Mercury Mail Transport System is a mail transfer agent. Sending mails when testing is kinda pointless.
    FileZilla FTP Server is a FTP server. Who uses FTP in localhost?
    Tomcat is a webserver usually assosiated with JAVA programs and is not needed for PHP development. Most likely it comes with the baggage because of Perl.

    Traditionally after installation it should tell you on what port it is running.
    Then you open your browser at http://localhostortnumber

    Maybe this is just pointless rambling. But it might help someone.

    I do for simulating and easier management of file permissions. I had more trouble with permissions when I just moved files in the file system (especially when testing a CMS) than with FTP.
