Apache on Windows

I had never used the apache web server before. All my past sever side scripts ran on the IIS which is available with windows. So this time i deceided to go on with apache. The installation is swift and took no time at all. But the configuration of the server is the tricky part ( compared to IIS) , I had to add only one line in the httpd.conf file in the conf folder... it was the servername= localhost... all files that you want to put on the site go into the /htdocs folder the same as the www/root folder in IIS. Finally i had a few problems with running perll scripts on apache but he error.log file was helpful to figure out wat was wrong...
