Sorry for spamming guys, but I have some questions that needs the be asked.First of all, I want to start learning PHP, I know HTML, XHTML and abit CSS, I tried ASP first, but its to hard for my understanding.So I sayed - "PHP it is!", but I have some problems.So, I think I want the PHP on my computer, so I will not have an upload frenzy, yet, some issues:

  • http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi - What do I install here?! there so much links, and words like "Unix" that I can't understand, if any one here can just give me a link.
  • Once I finish installing it there, where do I install PHP?
  • Once I finish installing the Apache server and PHP, where do I install the MySQL server?
  • When ill finish the 2 things above, will I be able to put .php files every where in my computer?
  • If not, where will I put the .php files?

Ill love some answers,thanks in advance.Btw, im using windows 98 SE.Yuval.[Oh, another thing, English isn't my first language, so I'm sorry if I have grammar or spelling mistakes in the post].

1. Try looking at this: http://www.w3schools.com/php/php_install.asp2. See #13. See #24. You'll always be able to put the php files on your computer, just not run them. But yes, if you install this, you will be able to execute PHP on your computer.5. See #46. Not sure about if it'll work on your OS, but it probably will.Good luck.Choco

Hm,Little Goat - I don't think I tried it, but EasyPHP is slowing down my comp as ######, so I prefer not to try.gml_josea - Tried XAMPP to some 4 ~ 5 mouth ago, didn't worked to.I think im destined to not know side scripting languages :).

No Yuval not the whole site.1) Go to http://www.firepages.com.au/2) Click phpdev bundles3) Click phpdev4234) Click download5) Click phpdev423.exe 10.49MBOr you can skip all those and go to here http://www.firepages.com.au/phpdev4u1.htm this is the step 5 above.Hope this helps.

:)"Installer verification failed.This could be the result of an incomplete download,a failing disk, or (possibly) corruption from a virus."Why o' why :)?[btw, the link supports all the 3 things? or ill have to downlaod Apache and MySQL alone in a differnt link?]And thanks for the help far by now.

Download IBserver, its very simple. http://sourceforge.net/projects/ibserver/Just download the newest version, install, and place your files in the www folder. Then in your browser go to http://localhost and you will find your files.

Downloaded the full version, installed it, and found the www folder.There, I noticed there is a index.php file, I got to local host, and it wrote that the page can't be displayed.

Okey, well installing it is one thing, running it is another. You need to actually have the program running in the background. So start up IBserver and then go to your localhost.

Well, I started it by starting the "IBserver.exe" file, I Started the Apache, I tried to start MySQL, so I clicked at the botton, didn't activated.OK I said, i'll move on, the second thing was that even when I started the server, my computer didn't soppurted the .php files, so I had to open the php file via notpad.Next thing was opening the index.php file via the local host, it worked fine, all acsept the fact that when I viewed the source, it shown me some thing like "<?php #################### ?>".Well, next, I made a test.php file, I wrote in it:
<html> <body>  Hello world!  <?php echo "Hello world!"; ?> </body></html>

The HTML "Hello world!" worked,but the PHP way didn't.But thx for the support this way.Any one alse :)?
