I installed PHP 5.3.3 and Apache 2.2 on Windosw 7.
I chose the standard install for PHP.
Apache first and PHP (cgi-Apache) last.
Apache works. The server is running, and I get "It works!"
The PHP install made its changes to httpd.conf.
When I try to invoke phpinfo.php in Iexplore, I get HTTP error 404.
If i change httpd.conf as shown below, I get a dialog box offering me to open phpinfo.php or save it. If I choose open, I get the same.
My changes to httpd.conf:
#Action application/x-httpd-php "C:/PHP/php-cgi.exe"
Action php "C:/PHP/php-cgi.exe"
I addet AddType application/x-httpd-php .php to httpd.conf. No change.
I added C:\php to the user path and the system path. No change.
