    PHP Instalation

    Ok, I have php on my computer, but not installed. I remember downloading it a while ago. But now I gotta download either apache or mysql, or do I need them both? All I wanna do is to be able to practice php on my harddrive, with that in mind, whch ones do I need to download and install? Could anyone help me via im when I install it? I've finally decided I'm going to get on it

    Talking I found an easy way..

    Firstly, install PHPTriad, from

    http://www.zend.com

    Then install PHPEasyWindows Installer, from -

    http://php.weblogs.com/easywindows

    Job done. With that, you have Apache, PHP and mySQL. Easy!

    This worked for me ----

    This is what I did.

    I downloaded PHPTRIAD (I think you already have this, don't you?). Run the install on that.

    Then download http://phplens.com/dl/php404.exe

    this will overwrite the php.ini in c:\windows\system.

    In c:\apache, you have a folder called htdocs. This is the 'root' directory for your apache webfolder. make sure that there is an index.php or html in there.

    Start Apache. Its runs lovely in an 'ickle dos box.

    Open a browser. In the address bar, type 'localhost'

    if you see a webpage, your a winner.

    It's got to be said, I got it running more by luck than design. Thats why I have laid out my process in this way.

    HIH.

    I agree PHPTriad is good, but I recommend Foxserv although it is 12 megs. http://foxserv.fox-hunt.net/

    confused

    so I download that instead of php triad, and I would also download the other link dean gave me? Or would I still need that? Haha, I'm sorry guys? All I wanna do is be able to type php, etc on my hard drive, I dunno about 12 megs, I'll consider it, haha, that would take a while on my 56k. I think even though TraidPhp is probably about 6 megs or whatever, that's half that, and my modem takes forever, haha, sorry php boy, my modems still in the 90's, I don't got cable yet

    Ok

    after looking at the front page I couldn't find it, but I was lookin around and stumbled on this link:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/foxserv/

    And it has what I think I'm looking for. It has a "foxserve complete", do I download that, but there is also another one called "foxserve webinstall", do I download both, or one of them, or what?

    I could cry!

    It's done man, all installed! One question, how do I work it?

    If I create a file with an extension .php, it doesn't work as a web page, it still runs through notebook and is just words. How do I start practicin my php? I went to "localhost", got everythin runnin, but I still can't figure out how to start workin and learnin!
