Install problem apache php!

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


I have been struggling in my spare time configuring apache and php.
I am running windows xp pro O/S.
Here is the problem, if i install apache choosing the option "For all
users on port 80 as a service, recommended", all works fine i can
create php files and run them in my browsers but i have to be online,
it won't work offline (I understand port 80 is the web, can i change
it and how if yes?).
Now if i install apache with the second option "only for the current
user on port 8080, when started manually." in order to be doing what i
really want which is to test my code offline on my PC, nothing will
work.I get the console and don't know what to do with it.I am supposed
to start apache manually but how?
I hope someone can help before i switch to asp!

Thanks for your help
