I know that most of you are sick to see that topic over and over again, but I count on your help. Really. I've also have to say that I've spent lots of hours reading the official documentation and following the instructions. I've also read many posts trying to find the answer I am looking for but - nothing!
So, I need to install PHP 4.3.6 on WinXP Pro With Apache 2.0.49. I want to make tests of PHP scripts on the same local machine; working directory: c:\somenet.
My question is: What I do wrong and/or what I miss to do?
1. I downloaded 'apache_2.0.49-win32-x86-no_ssl.msi' file (5 955KB) from the http://www.apache.org/
2.Installed it with default settings: http://www.somenet.com
, etc. in the default directory: c:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2
3.Changed 2 lines in httpd.conf:
4.Created file index.html in c:\somenet with simple 'Hello World' message
So far, so good! Apache works OK! When I simply try to connect in IE to the local host '127.0.0.1' and I see the page I made (c:\somenet\index.html). It even works on the local net! That's good... But Let's go to the PHP.
5.I've downloaded 'php-4.3.6-Win32.zip' file (7 202KB) from http://www.php.net/
6.Unzipped the content in 'c:\' and renamed 'c:\php-4.3.6-Win32' directory to 'c:\php' (as recommended in the manuals).
7.I've made a copy of 'php.ini-recommended' form 'c:\php' to 'c:\windows' and ranamed it to 'php.ini'
8.Set the following lines:
doc_root = c:\somenet
user_dir = c:\somenet
extension_dir = "c:\php\extensions"
9.Coppied 'php4ts.dll' to 'c:\php\sapi'.
10. Added these two lines in DSO section of 'httpd.conf'
LoadModule php4_module c:/php/sapi/php4apache2.dll
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
11.Added simple PHP code in 'index.html' to make test.
So, it should be working? Or I am missing something?! It didn't work so I also did this:
12.Coppied all of the conent in 'c:\php\sapi' folder to the following directories:
c:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2
I did it step by step, which means i first coppied to 'c:\windows\system32' and tried if it's going to work... Nope. It didn't ...
13. I've also reanamed 'c:/php/sapi/php4apache2.dll' to see if Apache tries to access to that file. Yes, it does.
14. Then I uncomment almost all of the extensions in 'php.ini' file (the one in 'c:\windows') like:
by removing ';' . The apache does acces to most of them except ones like:
But... Still nothing!!!
Well, usually I don't like to ask for help, but this time I really need your help guys. As I've said: I count on you!
Thank you all very much in advance!
P.S.I know I've explained it too much detailed but I wanted to be sure that you'll imagine exactly how I do it.
P.P.S The funny thing is that about two months ago when I've tried to install php on apache for the first time I did it with almost no difficulties. But now it just doesn't want to work
