PHP question...

Recommended Posts

You write in a word proccessor, such as Notpad, save it with a .php extension, upload to your site, and whenever someone accesses it, the server will automaticly parse it.

download the apache web server, there are TONS of tutorials on how to set the two up together.

they're part of the free system LAMP (Linux, Apache, mySQL and PHP)

apache basicly turns your computer into a web server, also is you're using windows there's... ISS? i think thats what it's called, its the microsoft web server

Or WAMP (Windows, Apache, mySQL and PHP)...

I use a WAMP-style setup and home and it's great. Screw ISS ;)


After getting Apache installed (and getting it to play nice with mod_PHP5), you just save your page to the web-server's directory (something like C:\program files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs) and open up your browser and can view your PHP pages by typing in something like: http://localhost/mytestpage.php

[EDIT] If you don't like the idea of installing Apache/PHP/MySQL yourself (and configuring them to all work together), then google should be able to locate you an all-in-one installer, such as this one.
