I'm trying to do the above on XP using the following instructions:
Save to C:\ to prompt a diretory of C:\apache2 (for ease of navigation presumably)
Insert localhost as the server settings and a spare e-mail adress for initial config, otherwise install a typical setup.
Download php5 and save in C:\php5\
Insert the following code in the main apache config file (httpd.conf) in the global settings section under the main LoadModule text block.
[codebox]LoadModule php5_module c:/php5/php5apache2.dll
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
This should tell apache that php5 is present and limit file interpretation to .php.
Rename file php.ini-dist (main php config file) to php.ini and save in C:\php5\
open a text editor and insert the following:
Save it in apache's htdocs directory as phpinfo.php
To test the config open a web browser and type [codebox]http://localhost/phpinfo.php[/codebox]
And that should bring up a system spec with a range of info.
Of course, it doesn't. If anyone has any idea why this might be the case (I've checked for typo's) I'd appreciate it.
