hi there

ok, I'm finally dipping my toe into the murky world of PHP programming so wanna get my PC set up with a local web server so that I don't have to keep uploading to my ISP to see if the pages work or not...

I finally got IIS installed (after a few aborted attempts) but am now a bit stumped on what to do next to get my PHP pages to work. I think I need to install something additional but am not sure what.

Hope someone can help

cheers

You will need to install PHP. Have a look at h*tp://www.php.net/downloads.php

had a further search and found that anyway so that's all installed - cheers.

It doesn't seem to work though - I've got .php page with a form - if I try to use it locally I just get "The Page Cannot Be Displayed" come up.

Something else I need to configure somewhere?

thanks

are you sure the path is right? Is it stored in the right place and IIS configured to look for it there?

I use apache so I am not up to speed on configuring IIS but check the path/IIS settings (does IIS know what to do with php files?) first.

hi daz,

not really IIS, but another option is foxserv.com - which is a simple download, one-click install for php, mysql and apache.

it saves me hours of dev work a week already.

ok, I gave up with IIS in the end - it's typical of bloody Microsoft to make life as difficult as possible isn't it?

I went with PHPTriad instead - it's working a treat so far.. Well, can't get MySQL to work on it but I'm not too fussed about that at the mo - as long as the forms work! :)

I used phpdev (which from what I can tell is very similar to phpTriad) and it is really excellent. You really can't beat an integrated installation of Apache/PHP/mySQL .
