Installing WAMP, Drush & Drupal on Windows 7

This video will help you setup a environment on your computer to do Drupal development.

I have posted the text instructions that I wrote when creating this demonstration. See it here: gist.github.com/​861733

-- Drupal Website --
drupal.org

-- Things to download --
wampserver.com/​en/​
drupal.org/​project/​drush - many people have problems with the current version 4 of Drush... save yourself a headache and use version 3.
gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/​packages/​

-- Additional tools that may be useful --
7-zip.org
eclipse.org/​pdt/​
cygwin.com/​
netbeans.org/​

-- Configuration to add to httpd.conf, don't add extra spaces! --

NameVirtualHost 127.0.0.1

{VirtualHost 127.0.0.1}
DocumentRoot "C:\wamp\www"
ServerName localhost
{/virtualHost}

{VirtualHost 127.0.0.1}
DocumentRoot "C:\wamp\www\d6test"
ServerName d6test.localhost
{/virtualHost}

Note: the curly braces should be replace by greater-than and less-than signs.
