Newbie Configuration Question

Sorry if this is a repeat, but I haven’t been able to find the answer.

I have a simple windows laptop which I’ve been using to learn PHP over
the last few months, having installed it, Apache and MYSQL.

I want to start picking up Ruby and Rails, and ideally would like to
be able to use the same machine for both purposes. I have not yet
found a clear answer on whether it is possible to install Ruby on
Rails and use the same Apache installation for both it and PHP.

Is this possible, and if so, can anyone point me to reasonably
understandable configuration instructions?

Thanks in advance.

Certainly is possible, although I don’t have any instructions to hand
on how you would do it. 99.9% of the time the fact that you’ve also
got php in use is going to be irrelevant (and certainly for
development you’re unlikely to use apache with your rails app,
mongrel will do fine).
