Yes I am in a similar boat.

I amd soaked in Windows and have been messing with wamp and quite like it.

Now I want to set up a box to use a s a test for my sites which we have on a shared server I think using Debian...

Operating system Linux
Path to PERL /usr/bin/perl
Kernel version 2.6.18-164.el5
cPanel Version 11.25.0-CURRENT
Architecture i686
MySQL version 5.0.89-community
cPanel Build 43473
Path to sendmail /usr/sbin/sendmail
Apache version 2.2.14
PHP version 5.2.11
cPanel Pro 1.0 (RC1)

I don't necessarily want to mimic them as they are high end.

I just want a very easy interface on a Linux server package where I can load up my sites and test them in a true Linux environment as wamp is not exactly that.

I have the Centos 5.4 CD and the whole 5.3 6 CD set, as well as the latest Mepis CD and a Fedora 8 CD.

Summary is an easy to use graphic interface to run a testing server.
