Hello to all,

I'm just starting off learning PHP programming.As for the beginning i managed to download Apache 2.2 and PHP 5.3.0 , but i gave up frustrated after browsing several pages googling how to add the PHP to the Apache so that the server uses the php interpreter and run my .php files. I did't well realize how to modify the .ini file in the php installation folder.i tried it once reading from a web tutorial but the server failed to start.I will appreciate any kind help.My OS is winXP.

Thanks in advance

doing it yourself is in the too hard basket
WAMP (windows apache mysql php) will install it all as a package that works together. http://www.soft-go.com/view/WAMP5_20010.html

yes you were right,i 'd better use WampServer instead of struggling with installing seperated apache and PHP 5 . i downloaded it , and it's working great :)

Good luck everybody !
