  1. Hi!

    Maybe a silly question, but i'd rather be safe than sorry...
    The network configuration on my laptop is configured with Cisco AnyConnect VPN client to connect to my office from anywhere. Now I want to install Joomla! locally (with Apache, MySQL and PHP).

    Could this interfere or alter in any way my current network setup? Would it be better to install it on a virtual machine, like VirtualBox?

    OK, no answers so far, but I couldn't wait so I just installed Xampp as the Joomla! documentation suggested. So far the only problem I've found is that I am unable to enter "http://localhost/" while connected to VPN. But to me it's not very important, because I never need to stay connected to VPN while working with Joomla!.
