Is there any local php server program?





asteriks
I want to make php web sites, but I need some programs, like local server php programs. What do you suggest me?
kv
You can download apache for your webserver from

http://httpd.apache.org/

Php interpreter from

http://php.net/

In the php docs, you will find configuration info to make php work with apache. Install both of them and configure apache to recognise php. That's it. You are all set for developing php sites.

Hello
I thought there also are programs to local run php scripts without the need of installing apache.
Grtz.

Yes, I want to know these programs. Can you say some of them names?

To run the scripts you must install apache (or other web server) in some way shape or form. The easiest for a local test enviroment is Xampp. http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html
{name here}
Get an MSI installer for Apache. Set all domain configuration to 127.0.0.1 or localhost. Then install PHP and MySQL. Then, you're set. It'll allow you to test your PHP/MySQL scripts.

try Xampp, its what i use.. its very simple... get xampp.. install it. take a few things out of htdocs folder and put ur stuff in there that you want... then in a browser do http://localhost and it will show up what you got in the htdocs directory... xampps site is.... i dont know offhand,, just google xampp and the site name is like... apachefriends or summet..
