Somebody please help, kinda.

I need a good (no Ecniv i can't get signed up @ 4gigs) PHP server. That's hopefully free. I just want to learn an experiment with it, so i really don't want to pay.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

It's not too hard to set up your own environment with FoxServ (Apache + PHP + MySQL, Perl, etc.), http://www.tripod.co.uk is one, however the variant of PHP they use is cut down, which means some functions are shorted out as well

Should still work for simple home-brewed scripting though.

Windows Schmidows....hahahhahaha. I think i'll just have to get my linux cds back and load up Apache, PHP, MYSql and all the other fun stuff. See what I could learn.

The reason I don't want to host it on my local machine, I'm on ATT Cable service, and my upload (client download) sucks! So it would run realllllllllllllllllly slow. Plus it's a slow machine PIIMMX 333MHZ. :p

Well, there are alot of them out there, go to google and search for "Free PHP web hosting"

problem is they all have different libs installed, and most dont have GD, which is the one I need ;)
