As others have said, you need to set up a server on your machine. If you
are running Windows (at least XP Pro), you can use IIS. Yes, it is
different from Apache, and does not have a lot of the great bells and
whistles, but for a testing server, s'all right.

Re: Will this work?
The *basic* setup for Apache is simple (ie if all you want to do is show
web pages in your browser) but it's a powerful little thing and scaleable.
You could eventually configure it to do anything you would ever dream of
doing on a web server. It's all in the configuration file, the sections of
which are explained well actually within the file.
I set up IIS once years ago and as I recall it was a little more difficult
to come to grips with than Apache.
