I need to create a local development environment in order to develop oscommerce and magento websites. Some of these sites are being imported from a remote server that runs php 5.3.24. As a result when I installed php 5.4 and set them up locally they didn't work. I was finally able to get them setup after installing an older version of xampp that included php 5.3. The problem with that version is it doesnt have cURL installed. I also tryed wamp, but it seemed to have a bug in regards to enabling cURL. After trying to manually install php/mysql/apache and realizing I was in over my head, I'm at my wits ends.
So, here are my requirements:
-cURL installed and enabled
Please advise as to the best way to setup an environment that satisfies these needs.
