Has anyone installed PHPtriad? Well, it was easy enough;) How has it worked for you?

madcat, I have never installed PHPtriad. I might suggest trying FoxServ instead [foxserv.net...] this is what I use and have used on 98 ME and XP and never had any errors installing it. It also includes more than just apache, php and mysql. It allows for perl python and soap I beleive. Just a suggestion though. And no I dont work for them.

Thanks Knowles- It's up and running...it might be more of a case of me not knowing how to work with it at this point;)
Incidentally, to download foxserv you need to go back to sourceforge, the place where you download PHPtriad.

SourceForge is just a free hosting area for developmental software. I did see that FoxServ points you back to it for download now.
What are you having trouble using now? Just the actuall PHP coding?

Actually, I've never seen any of this before man. The instructions say to open the Apache and MySQL servers so they're running in the background. <<Of course, this is for testing locally>>.
I'm sure when I get to the actual 'working with the PHP code' and uploading it to my host server will be much easier to understand. I really want to set up a local testing area on my computer but don't quite get it? Where is the MySQL interface?
Right now, I just want to start dishing out Web pages using PHP -- Then when I get a grasp start writing apps.

You can do it throught DOS, winMYSQLAdmin or try getting the MySQLGUI from MySQL website. You also might want to install after that phpmyadmin. This will let you work with the tables and such through a browers and is probably what your server is using. Better yet go to the [mysql.com...] then to protal software and admin. There are alot of front ends for it which should help you get things set up on how to get MySQL more usable for you.
Once you have that all set you can start testing locally. You just need to type in [localhost...] and it will take you to your index. You should be able to find a foler probably in PHPTriad (not sure since I dont use it) that will say HTML or WWW thats where you will put your files and create folders to keep things nice and neat.

It depends on what you mean. The Win binaries come with some GUI management tools and a MySQL client. Look in your Mysql dirs for the /bin directory.
If you want a GUI for actually looking at data and inserting, testing queries and so on, I would *strongly* recommend MySQL-Front. It is ten times better/faster than phpMyAdmin, but under most circumstances, you can only use it locally (because of the connection protocol it uses, most shared hosting providers will blacklist it).
As for the rest, I've set Apache/PHP/MySQL up on Win 95 and Win2k workstations just by downloading the binaries and installing them. Never a problem. For Linux it's sometimes advantageous to compile your own, but I haven't even tried this under Windows.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\w3svc\parameters\Script Map >> is where I need to go add my .php entry/ values...
Why? I don't recall ever doing this. Can't you just use the standard PHP installer?

I got php, apache, mysql and phpmyadmin up and running on Win XP recently (Knowles, you might remember!!).
The biggest lesson I learnt was to restart Apache each time you change a setting whether it is the phpmyadmin config, httpd.conf or anything else - save you a lot of effort trying to figure out why phpmyadmin wont work!

And clear cache if you can figure out how too! I had my apache unusable for about 2 days for not doing thinat it kept mapping to the wrong directory. After countless restarts and and double checks fo httpd.conf I finally corrected it after clearing cache.

Under Windows 2K (and I assume XP Pro), this requires being signed in as admin if you are running it as a service, so always sign in with admin privileges until you get it straightened out.
Also, running Apache and MySQL as services is definitely the way to go.
