Have you edited your apache configuration file to include php and
restarted apache? This assumes you are intending to use php as an apache
module.

My httpd.conf has
LoadModule php4_module C:\FoxServ/php4/sapi/php4apache.dll
# Loads the php module in apache; your path will probably be different

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php4 .php .php3
# Tells which file extensions should be parsed by php

AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps
# Tells which file extension should show highlighted source of php
# (optional)

and... copy

php4apache.dll and php.ini in to place (I think the php4apache.dll can sit
in c:\windows\ or c:\windows\system or the same folder that has your php.exe
file and the php.ini file I think must (?) sit in c:\windows

i think my problem may the where the tutorial says to add...

DocumentRoot "C:/Web"
<Directory "C:/Web">

to my apache config file.

http://internetmaster.com/installtut...he_for_php.htm

i think that is a typo and should read with backward slashes like this...

DocumentRoot "C:\Web"
<Directory "C:\Web">

i haven't updated my apache config file yet, but i think this may get me on my way.

i hope so, anyway. ;-)
