Go to php.net 

Find a distro for your platform. 

It will place files into the correct directory which typically was c:\php on
a windows machine. 

 

HTML is different. Do you want to display the HTML in a browser? If so, you
need to install a HTTP server (web server) such as apache. www.apache.org.

Web server install is a separate process. If you do the web server you may
need to tell it about (change a config file setting) to indicate the
presence of a php install.

Subject: [nycphp-talk] QUESTION ABOUT PHP INSTALLATION

 

Hello,

 

I am trying to install PHP 5.1.4 on my Windows Computer. Please note that it
is not a Web Server. Its just a simple computer for home use. First of all,
can I even install PHP on this or does it have to be on a web server? Then
what configuration changes do I need to make in order for the PHP files to
run successfully? Does my source code have to be in any particular directory
on my machine and in order to access those pages, what URL do I need to type
in my browser and can I also put my HTML files in the same directory? Please
can you help me? 

 

Thanks.

Sincerely Yours,

Salman Mazhar.
