HELP - newbie to php

Sun Feb 29, 2004 6:26 pm

Have any of you guys used php for building web-pages. Is it possible for me to build a website using php on my computer locally, but not load to a server or anything?

Yes. You have to run web server software locally and install PHP.

What OS?

You could install Apache. Then PHP. For Windows XP.

Yes, Apache is a free (Open Source) web server package that runs on both Unix/Linux and Windows. It fully supports PHP.
If the world isn't making sense to you, you're either drinking too much or not drinking enough.
