    Hi,

    I'd like to teach myself how to script using PHP via the tutorial on the W3's website.

    How would I go about viewing the pages I've created in IE or Firefox using a web server configured to run locally on my machine? I can't use IIS as I have to change the address to 127.0.0.1 in order for it to work which means my connection to the Internet's lost and I can't make further progress with the tutorial. Will I need to install something like Apache? My PC's running a copy of XP by the way!

    All help greatly appreciated. :)

    - Alex

    Yeah you need a webserver to run your scripts try xampp, put the php files in the htdocs folder and the goto http://localhost
