I am using Appserv to run a local testing server on my PC but I have some problem with PHP version with it.
I heard about wamp and xampp, has anyone here tried both?
Please recommend me which server is easy to setup and managing?

IIS is an absolutely horrific web server.
Either one is fine. XAMPP has a richer featureset (that being it's not only a web server, it also has FTP servers, accelerators, SSL and so on). WAMP is much lighter.

My personal preference if I'm setting up a Windows testing environment is WAMP.

What makes it horrific? I used it for about a year and had an absolute ball with it.

Sorry, that's of course speaking from my own experience. Configuration is terrible, migrating is worse, it's built very statically and module support is lacking. Stability-wise it's also inferior to really any other web server I've ever tried. The only reason I could see IIS as a webserver is for people who want to make websites using C# for example. Then again, I would instead question why they would want to do that in the first place, heh!
