I am running Windows 7 and I was trying to uninstall Apache version 2.0.63 and install the Apache 2.0.54 version. Everytime I tried to install the 2.0.54 version it showed that the service was already installed. I deleted the Apache2 service through the registry editor. And now when I have installed the 2.0.54 version I can't either stop or start the service and I can't find Apache2 service in the 'services' list. when I type in {http://localhost} in the browser it shows me "It works" but when I try to run a PHP script it says could not connect to local host. Could you please help me?

It is usually straightforward to install Apache both on Windows and Linux. You can try XAMPP for example – it comes with everything. Just follow the instructions.
