Thread: problems installing apache and php

    problems installing apache and php

    Hi All
    I was folowing this kirupa's tutorial
    www.kirupa.com/web/apache_php3.html
    to install this damn php and apache to learn this php thing, i dont know whats happen but its not working
    I mean, in the end it loads html that is inside the stldocs folder, but gives a error when it comes with php
    It may be because when i was installing php i didnt click in 'let php configure apache'?
    Also, i could not find the files it tells us to download, so i get a newest version of those, something in the httpd file has to be diferent for that?
    I am completely lost, i dont want to be an expert in handle web servers, all i want is to test my php and mysql scripts
    Also, english is not my first language, so i apologize for any mistake
    Thanks in advance

    i could not find this
    I am using win xp

    Dude just go to http://www.easyphp.org and install that ....unless you've set out to learn specifically how to install and config the individual application, this will give you an instant local development environment

    I agree with the rest these peeps. WAMP has never let me down ! (note: it can chew up some memory though)

    Deleta and remove your current PHP and Appache etc and then just use wampserver, and then when you get REALLY good you can setup a custom appache PHP stystem

    Ok, thanks everyone,i will see what i can learn from this wamp server
    Anyway, i deleted apache but could not find the php to delete in windows add/remove programs
    The php i clicked 'install' is gone when i deleted apache?
    I am afraid i will have troubles with wamp this way

    Besides, even with this wamp working, its better to fix that tutorial cos it makes a bad impression of this site

    however you write those things theyre confusing, the software itself is confusing at first.

    Ive still never done it, ive always used a linux server.

  13. #13
    I used to think apache was the server that cames with linux

  14. #14
    it does most of the time, linux = OS, appache = web-server handler thingy

    appache runs of linux, but linux servers are easy as most of them come with appache, PHP and MySQL set-up

    Will you have problems if you do not get rid of the apache and php files?
    YES
    It will happen, it happend to me.
