    1. Download the Apache Xampp program and extract the content into C: or
    D:. The extractor should auto create teh folder. Assume we select the D:
    drive. The folder created should turn out to be something like

    2. Open the "d:\xampp" folder and double click on the
    "setup_xampp.bat". This shall activate the Apache and MySQL service.

    "mysql_start". To ensure that the SQL service is running, please goto
    the ":\xampp\mysql" folder and click on "mysql_installservice".

    3. Open the internet browser, enter the url address "http://localhost";.
    If the sites auto direct to http://localhost/xampp and the screen
