[JS] The only "trick" with using localhost is that it goes through the
network stack, so do NOT disable that.

[JS] You can use IIS, Apache, or Tomcat; MySQL is completely oblivious to
any and all web servers.

[JS] I use PHPAdmin. When you install the Windows MSI package for PHP, it
will ask you which web server you want to configure. You'll want to run the
MSI using admin privileges.
