Hi there

If you want to use php on your machine, you'll need to install several things, and configure them (including apache server for one)

Take a look over here: http://php.belnet.be/manual/nl/faq.installation.php

kind regards
Tisse

Bin that man, we not needed and far to hard

Download the latest version of phpdev5 from http://www.firepages.com.au and you can run php and mysql stuff on your local host just like a server.

Allot easier and pretty cool. Just put your .php files in the www folder and run them from http://localhost

Sorry the_real_tisse, all I meant was I spent one day to many trying to install apache, mysql AND php.

After head butting my screen till I almost needed a new one I downloaded phpdev5 and done it all in 5min!

I’m not sure what I was more annoyed about in the end, the waist of a day in the pub or doing it so easily via phpdev5.

Just trying to help the fella the best way I know how as well.

OMG I just got the phpDev5 that totally rawks! Thanks for the info. I had never even thought about installing webservices locally. Ok I thought about it but never had a machine that I thought could run web services. Anyway I was waiting for a friend of mine to get my account set up on his box. I can log in and move through the file system on his box, but I cant FTP or access anything via the web. I was trying not to bug the heck outta him to get it all set up and working and then I ran across this topic. I installed phpDev5 and boom im up and running. Theres some things Im gonna have to work through but I have never really done admin much except from within postgreSQL so now I get to dig in and get my hands dirty. Thanks so much. I have gobs and gobs of php dev that has been in the wings for quite some time now.

Goodbye sleep, hello double espresso shooters!!!!!

You can also download XAMPP, just google it. It does the same as PHPDev5, but with more options :)

I also use ZDE (Zend Development Envirnment), which is very nice, but I also like to code myself, not using any premade code.

Yeah I looked into Zend. And I dont like to use any premade code (unless of course its MY pre made code) but I digress. I occasionally work for a company that has built its own CMS. At one point I was lead developer, but I dont think that still holds true. However I think with my experience with this company I can write a pretty decent 'light' version of what they were offering only with out all the 'robustness' needed for developers and go after mom and pop shops. I have twiddled with the phpWebSite that comes bundled with phpDev and have played a little with the forum that also comes bundled. This is more for a reference than something I wanna tweak. and yes I know that there are alot of CMS options out there, but none of them come with me :P

I may not be the best coder, or have the most expereince in $x field but I do have 20 + yrs of computer/telecomunications and Im only 33 (I had a 300 baud modem on my C=64 in 83/84). So I figure that if my CMS isnt a re-invention of the wheel so to speak, at least it comes with a healty warranty.

I'm a big fan of EasyPHP, its so easy to use. It comes with Apache server, PHP and MySQL server. Dont know if anyone else here has used it or not?!?

Download XAMPP. It sets everything up for you. All you have to do is configure your router to allow specific ports, if you have a router...

I don't even think you have use..you know what...forget the router part.

Search Google for "XAMPP".

It's what I use. ;)
