I am not sure that this is the place to teach now to install apache or
php or mysql or phpmyadmin on any platform.

But if you are having problems maybe I can help you through.

First .. 

Do you have apache running?
Do you have mySql running?
Do you have PHP running?

At this point you should be able to create a phpinfo.php page and run
seeing all that php sees.

Echo phpinfo();

Then simply http://localhost/phpinfo.php

Does this work?

Thanks Gary.  That's definitely a new link for me.  

In all the 36,437 words there (among the many, many unanswered
questions, I must add), did you find anything specific there to address
my challenge, namely:

- *linking steps and confirmation checks* when installing 
- MediaWiki on 
- Apache, 
- PHP, 
- MySQL, and 
- MediaWiki 
- and PHPMyAdmin
- on Microsoft-Windows-XP-Pro?  

I'm afraid I didn't.

Thanks anyway.  I'll keep looking ... and asking around.
