PHP, IIS and Dreamweaver ...

Postby Gort Skoog » Thu May 15, 2003 7:02 am

If I were any newer to PHP, I'd be a fetus. That said, I need some help, if someone would (-;

Pure coding is NOT my strong suit. Hence, Dreamweaver. In DW-MX, I am able to visualize all my pages as I create them. I have been told I should be able to view PHP pages (PHP Nuke, PHPbb themes) in DW-MX and develop the pages on my computer without having to upload to the server every time I make the slightest change.

When I press F12 (view in browser) in DW-MX, the result in IE is a plain page that says, "CGI Error
The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers. The headers it did return are:" followed by nothing.

I realize there are no headers in a pure PHP document. Why won't the page show to me in the Design View of DW-MX and in the IE viewer?

Any setup suggestions I may have overlooked? I appreciate any help in getting me started (-;

being as your probably working on Windows, you could install the very simple Xitami, then install PHP on it... that's what I've done for testing of things.
