Installing Php 5.3.1

It sounds trite, but the best resource is the official manual. Even from the first time I installed PHP, I followed the instructions to the letter and it came up working. It will end up taking you about 30-45 minutes to read through and manually install it, but once it's done you should have a good understanding about how PHP is working together with the web server. This is the general installation section:http://www.php.net/manual/en/install.phpNot all of that is necessary though. Specifically, you'll want to read the manual installation steps:http://www.php.net/manual/en/install.windows.manual.phpThen the specific instructions for the server you're using:http://www.php.net/manual/en/install.windows.apache2.phpMaybe follow that up with the description about extensions:http://www.php.net/manual/en/install.windows.extensions.phpThey mention that there's a Windows installer, but since that installs with a set of default options and extensions it doesn't really give you a lot of flexibility, doing it manually would probably be preferred. Like I said, it sounds trite, but if you pay attention to the instructions and follow every one you shouldn't have any problems. The most time-consuming part will be when you're scrolling through php.ini reading about the different options and deciding how you want to set them. There's a description about php.ini here:http://www.php.net/manual/en/configuration.file.php

At what point does the error occur? And like it was said already - what exactly is the error message?
Whenever I try to parse a php script. Like I said to, its a bunch of error messages that says a bunch of files are missing.

There's not enough information for me to be able to help, so maybe do a Google search for one of the filenames (it will help if you use one of the actual filenames, instead of an example of what a filename may look like). This just doesn't return a lot of useful results:http://www.google.com/search?client=opera&...-8&oe=utf-8

Any PHP script, or a particular one? Even this script?
<?php phpinfo(); ?>

Have you extracted the whole PHP archive into a single folder? It sounds to me as if you're just having the "exe" file in a folder, and you don't have the rest with it.What changes did you made to your httpd.conf to enable PHP? How does it look like?
