Installing PHP on Win XP how to ?
greeting for all.im new at this forum.i just bought beginning PHP4 book,because i interested with PHP.
I'm using IBM thinkpad,R32,with intel P4 1.6Ghz,and using XP OS.
i already downloaded php file, and i started to install.
i followed the book step by step.
i was copied all the dll from php\extensions to windows\system32 directory.
i've changed the php.ini too and changed the line ;extensions=php_gd.dll with the same line without semi colon,so the line become extensions=php_gd.dll.
i executed "net stop iisadmin",and it was works succesfully.
but when i executed "net start w3svc",the proccess wal success but the file is searching for c:\php\extensions\php_gd.dll and its failed to open.
i've changed php.ini in line extensions=php_gd.dll and added semi colon,the line become => ;extensions=php_gd.dll
i tried again,"net stop iisadmin" and "net start w3svc".the proccess was success and no messagebox appeared.
so,i tried the first php,and save it as phpinfo.php.
i ram internet explorer,and set phpinfo on the file.but just the sintax appeared,like this :
there was alike with in the book,so i was confused,what wrong with my php.

how i can install php on Win XP step by step guide?
thanks to the forum..
