    I've been going round the bend trying to install PHP with Apache. I'm also trying to get MySql to work. I'm ruuning windows XP S.P. 2. I've been trying to install PHP 4.2.4 with Apache 2.x. When I try to access a PHP script through my browser it doesn't recognise the file!!!!

    With MySQL I try to use the Create Table command and enter the info then it says that there os no database!!!

    Help please someone-I am going mad here!

    I've tried the different versionas from the official websites. Now I'm trying the WAMP5 version. MySQL console asks for a password and doesn't accept mine!?

    All my docs on this are at work, and it is some time since I set our systems up, so I'm a bit rusty.
    From memory - for Apache 2 you have to add in the php apache module to get apache to recognize that php is there.
    Also don't forget to enable any extension like .php in the config.

    Start with a simple script like this (called test.php):
    Code:
    <HTML>
    <HEAD><TITLE>PHP Test</TITLE></HEAD>
    <BODY>
    <? phpinfo() ?>
    </BODY></HTML>
    You can't create a table with no database there. You need to create a database to hold tables. The easy way is to use mysqladmin and type "create <name>".

    I suggest reading the docs on MySQL - it will get you going faster!

    Thanks Jak!

    Now I've had a moment to check a few things I see I was a bit out of date, and things have moved on. I'd not come across WAMP before! :oops:

    You will need to be a bit clearer as to which package you have installed, and what the current problems are!
