Have you installed a web-server as well like Apache? PHP is not a web service it is a CGI (or command line) language that is used by a web-server.

I have install IIS for the PHP. Beside that, i have install Apache for my Java program..Is it because of that?
I have define http://localhost is for IIS and localhost:8080 is for Apache..
Other pc can access my http://localhost:8080, but cannot access my http://localhost

This sounds like an IIS issue. I am afraid I have no knowledge of IIS, I suggest you try a cross post in the IIS forum.

Hi there,

first of all you need the understand the term "localhost".. it's only applicable for the local computer running the webserver.. when you want to access the webserver from another pc you cannot use the localhost as your address.. but instead.. use the IP address of the webserver.. i.e.

hope it works.. good luck my fren.. :)
