Noooo, not XAMPP! Seriously, it's basic configuration has NO SECURITY, and NO PERFORMANCE for real world deployment. If you really want to then use it for a quick (dirty) test installation then go ahead, but I really do not recommend it for a live installation (and neither do they - http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-windows.html#1221) and the work involved in fixing the issues means it's best just to install MySQL & PHP for yourself. As for Apache, I've always prefered IIS since it's much easier for you to update, get SSL certificates and get working with AD authentication.
BTW, Microsoft will even install moodle for you - just install the IIS Web Platform Installer (Web Platform Installer 2.0 Walkthrough : Web Platform Installer : Microsoft Web Platform : The Official Microsoft IIS Site) and their's an option for it there. MS then download, setup and install PHP, MySQL and moodle for you, and do so with far better security than XAMPP...
