Hi,

My goal is to be able to test 3 different Wordpress sites in 3 browsers and compare the load time results and various other data.

I have setup WebPageTest 2.11 environment on my PC running Windows XP. I am running XAMPP with Apache 2.2 and PHP 5.4.7. Now my next step is to setup the test machines. I would like to use the same PC to run the tests. Should I create a unique VM for every test machine or or is there another option?

Thanks!
By "test machine" do you mean the server running wordpress that you are testing or the one that runs the browser? You can use the same XP machine to run the web UI as well as the test agents and Chrome, Firefox, Safari and IE can all be run from the same OS instance so you don't need any VM's for the browser side of the testing.
