Hi Astrid,

I'm glad you like it!

The link to Mapbender3 on the MS4W startpage (localhost) actually points 
to localhost/mapbender/ but inside the Apache configuration this is 
handled properly by the setting "DirectoryIndex app.php", so your 
app.php page is loaded when users goto localhost/mapbender/

I wonder why Andriy thought this was an error.  Please ask him for more 

Oh yes that old Mapbender documentation steps would be wonderful for 
this version, updated for Mapbender3.  And let me know if any more 
changes are needed to Apache/PHP, but I tried to add all of your 
dependencies.  Thank you!

Thanks for this feedback :)  Talk soon,
