I am taking my first foray into PHP programming and need to configure the environment for the first time. Can I use PHP with the built in VS web server or do I need to (and I hope not) use IIS locally?
In addition, any pointers on pitfalls to be avoided would be great.
Update: I should have made the question more explicit. I am developing a ASP.Net MVC application.
Update 2: It's become clear that I haven't asked the question as cleanly as I would have liked. Here is what I am doing. I have an existing ASP.net MVC application that I am adding an e-mail form to. While researching, I came across this page: Ajax Forms with jQuery and I liked the interface he presented and thought I would try and adapt it. Calls are made to PHP functions and hence my question.
It is also clear that the confusion also could come from the fact that there is a better approach entirely. So, what is the way out of the maze, Alice?
