coding php in knoppix and setting up a web server
I recently got the live cd version of knoppix. I tried to code some php in the vi text editor....went to compile the code and it errored on the first line...(ie. <?) say no such file or directory. Am I going about coding php in knoppix wrong...is it even possible? Any suggestions?
Also I need some information on how to set up a web server. I have a vb6 client that needs to pass 4 variables that are passed as a string separated by commas. I need to know how to set up a webserver for these values. If anyone can give me some step by step instructions on where(vb6 client or php server) and how exactly to do this it would be a big help.
