Hi,

Can anyone tell, how to detect whether PHP is installed or not? I want to find out this with the help of Registry in Windows? Is it possible?

?? its not somthing you would search the registry for, you must have a running server, and then download and set up PHP, i say setup because PHP is not somthing that installed persay.

to see if it is installed. create a PHP file like this

<?php
phpinfo(); //will display all of the phpinfo if php is installed else will print out as seen by the server
?>

save it is. info.php

open up your web server and go to

http://www.localhost/info.php

if it works and you see info then your lucky and have correctly installed PHP if not, you have to install it.

No www mr killer typp

htt://localhost ;)

But how can i check this with the help of registry? wicthout using phpinfo()!

there is nothing in the registry about PHP i believe, because it installs nothing, and is just a matter of moving files around. and thx zachery

IIRC Killer is right :)

php is just an extention of a webserver
