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.
