re: I still find setting up a PHP server not as easy and straightforward as a Node server. Is that true for most of you?

Depends if you build it up from a bare nude OS or not. Anyway I never set up a NodeJS capable web server, only did it for PHP and it was as easy as chaining commands. Got my website up and running, set up some cron for my Laravel Queue jobs, just a breeze.

Also have the same experience with a Xampp local config (and thinking on switching to Docker containers for my next project).
