Hi, I could be in the wrong area here, but I'm trying to install php/mysql and apache server on my PC. It's operating system is Microsoft XP home edition. I've downloaded and installed the files and made some changes i.e. renamed a file to php.ini and added some lines to the httpd.conf file. However when I try to view php in [localhost...] it's advising that the page cannot be displayed. Is this to do with browser settings?
Has anyone come across any similar problems? If so what did you do to get around the problem?
Thanks, I'll have a look at the library you've suggested and see how I get on.
Keeper, I don't think it's a 404 error I'm getting. The page that displays is the same as if you open internet explore without being connected to the internet (If that makes sense). Unfortunately I'm not at my home machine at the moment so can't check anything exactly. I have a html file and a php file in the location that should be localhost but it's not seeing them.
Do a search for a post by henry-o its great. I played for years on and off trying to figure out how to get apache, php, and mysql on my pc and laptop. with his indepth tutorial here at webmaster i had it up in about an hour and running great on XP home edition
