More information on the localhost link:

- localhost/mapbender/ points to the physical location: 
- Apache config settings for that location include: DirectoryIndex app.php
- when I goto that link on localhost, a Mapbender3 page is loaded with a 
few demo map images and a login link

Please do provide me new documentation for Mapbender version3 with this 
MS4W (www.ms4w.com).  Thanks so much for helping,
