Hi Folks, rookie at web development.
I downloaded and installed PHPTriad on a Win200 pro box. But when I go to start MySQL from the PHPTriad menu, nothing seems to happen ( I wonder if I need to do something manually). Also when I launch my local site, where is "Localhost" pointing to, is it to C:\Inetpub\wwwroot. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi petrazn,

I have never used PHPTriad, but still let me try to do my best.

1) Probably C:\Inetpub\wwwroot is not for apache but is for IIS. However when the server feature is turned on (if it requires manual start) then localhost should work just fine.

2) If you are unable to start MySQL from PHPTraid, then you can try c:\path to mysql\mysql.exe and start mysql from there.

I hope this is what you were looking for and it helps.

Also I don't know what state phpTriad is in these days. But when I tried it about 18 months ago, it seemed kindof buggy and did not have the lastest programs.

I found Foxserv to be much better and still use it now:
