Aye, use the self-installer-whatsit from http://www.php.net/
. I shouldn't think anything else could make things much easier to install and configure.
In all truth you could do a lot to improve on what you've got, anyway. First, ditch that wicked old PWS - it's dreadful - and get a proper webserver off http://www.apache.org
. Next, use the self-installer from http://www.php.net
to get your PHP running. After that, get the Windows 32 version of MySQL, which also has a self-installer, from http://www.mysql.com
With all that in place, you'll probably find you've done all you can, to make amends for not having gone and bought yourself a PowerMac in the first place :).
I've no idea why the books says you've to use http://php4win.de
, either, but it's an old book.

Hello I bought your book "Beggining PHP4" and the link you gave for downloading the version of php you suggest using (http://php4win.de) is under 'hibernation'. Is it horrible to use the version at www.php.net or is there another place to find the other one? All I really want is something to test pretty basic scripts on I'll have a real webserver in a month for doing database stuff.
Will appear after each of your posts.
