PHP & Apache

P: n/a
I am having problems getting PHP and Apache to "talk" with one another. Does anyone know of a good website that can show me how to get this done without a lot of pain?

Thanks,

Thanks. I think I should have given more information.I'm using PHP 5.x and
Apache 1.x because that is what the book I am using uses. At the current
time I am trying to get them to work on a Windows XP system, but will
probably need to move to Linux later on. Do you know of another website that
could help me out?

Thanks,

I'm not much into microsoft, but I guess you can have some help of
http://www.webmasterstop.com/48.html

It includes MySQL too, which is quite useful when making dynamic pages.
There should be some already made packages for microsoft that does include
apache/php/mysql already configured to be used together, but as I never used
those I can't remember the names even if they have been many time written here.

Would that be XAMMP: http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html?

phpdev seems to work quite well out of the box with Apache (1.x and 2.x)
php, mysql and a few other goodies. It has a pretty decent installer.

Just use any old machine, load Linux on it (I suggest Fedora Core) with
developemnet tools, text only, elinks of lynx test browser, read the
documentation in php, mysql and apache and you will soon have yourself
a super little web server, and learn a bunch on the way!

I have always found the site, http://www.phpfreaks.com to have plenty of
information. From tutorials to links to all the documentation you might
need. Plus, there is a forum there that a lot of helpful people
frequent.

Give it a shot. And if all else fails, just doing a simple google on
"setting up php and apache" will likely warrant you some step-by-step
articles as well.
