No, PHP should work fine. Can you be a little more specific about how you installed PHP? What webserver are you using? What operating system? How did you configure your webserver to work with PHP?



Take care,

Nik

if ur using windows system here is a package which automatically installs AMP (apache mysql php ).just doenload it from www.easyphp.org.I am working on this for the last 1year. it works as normal as manual settings. for this no need of any further installation of MYSql or apache. Just double click on setup file and Relax..

i have copy all the .dll extension to my c:\windows\system. as i m working with PWS.i even register my PWS for php...

Another question is: extension_dir = c:\php\extens~1 ; directory in which the loadable extensions (modules) reside

Izzit that i have to change the bold Text to c:\windows\system\extens~1, cos the book instruction to me is very blur.

Okay, that's not correct. You leave your extension dll's in the extensions directory. Extension DLLs are ones named php_*.dll. Your support dll's need to go into your windows system directory. These support dlls include php4ts.dll and any dll's in the php\dll directory that your extensions need. For example, the GD extension (php_gd2.dll) requires iconv.dll and gds32.dll. The XSLT extension (php_xslt.dll) requires sablot.dll.


Take care,

Nik
