I'm totally new to PHP and would like to start from scratch. I have installed the EasyPHP bundle (incl. Apache, MySQL & PHP).
As instructed by EasyPHP, I can load the http://localhost/index.php
in my browser. That makes me think that the apache web server is up and running. However, when I load a php file with the following codes...
<title>My First page in PHP</title>
Current date : <? print (Date("l F d, Y")); ?>
I cannot get the date displayed... My questions are:
(1) Do I have to do anything to make the php work, in addition to startup the web server.
(2) EasyPHP is easy to install, but, there's no admin function to further setup the configuration such as location of localhost, MySQL database etc. (correct me if I was wrong). Is there any other bunder out there which suit newbies like me?
Any idea is much appreciated. Thanks.
