easy start for beginners - Windows+PHP installation

Postby garans » Thu Oct 24, 2002 7:32 pm

Well, I've spent about 3 weeks to find the easiest way to install and tune
PHP and found the easiest way for Win98/Me and Win2000.

I. Installation
1. Install Personal Web Server (Win98/Me) or Internet Information Server
(Win2000) standard way.
2. Install PHP-4.2.3-installer from http://www.php.net.
3. In Windows (WinNT) directory open PHP.ini file and change line
;cgi.force_redirect = 1 to
cgi.force_redirect = 0
II. Remember:
1. Put Your .php scripts inside localhost directory - Inetpub.
2. With help of personal monitor of PWS or IIS give the folder,
you want to put your .php scripts, permission to execute
scripts. (properties of folder)
III. To check that all this work:
put in the folder you chosen a *.php file containing one line:

<? phpinfo(); ?>

You will see html-graphic information about php.

to Wizard - You are lazy and not wise
to Moderator - You are crazy f*ck
