Normally we can set up a website in windows 7 by enable iis 7 and asp in windows 7 ,this tutorial will show you a easier way to set up website in windows 7 using xammp  which contains php mysql apache and other services.

1.Download xammp from below link(ZIP or 7zip)

2.Extract the ZIP file you downloaded to your top level folder like “C:\” or “D:\” or “E:\” , etc.

3.Go to xammp folder and double click xampp-control.exe ,then get  Apache Start ,if necessary you can also get Mysql Start(see screenshot below)

4.Now you can launch http://127.0.0.1 or http://localhost  to confirm that you have set up a website successfully in windows 7,it’s  easier than set up a website by enable IIS and asp.

5.Some hints to configure your website.
