A pocket PC is just like a regular computer, so you just need to do the following things (assuming you want to create dynamic sites using PHP & MySQL):

- Install a Apache server, preferably with MySQL implemented: I would suggest XAMPP http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html

- Place the files into the xampp/htdocs/ folder (for example: xampp/htdocs/MyPage.php)

- Edit the files using a text editor, I would recommend one with syntax highlighting (http://notepad-plus-plus.org/)

- Open the files using a modern browser, I would recommend Firefox or Chrome, and not Internet Explorer, as IE has the nasty habit of caching pages so you can't see changes you keep making in the code. You can open the files by typing in: http://localhost/MyPage.php

And thats about it, it is the same as with an normal computer (but only pocket size)




I cannot find Apache Server for pocket PC WM2003 op.system!
