    - i downloaded phptriad from internet also php nuke 8 . phptriad
    includes apache , php and mysql . So , if i know phptriad has php,why do i use phpnuke 8 ?



    - for running apache with phptriad , it is said that we have to
    run apache.exe and mysqladmin .
    Making apache work only with apache.exe isn't enough?



    -apache local server and phpnuke i have. In this case , we can
    display localhost pages without internet connection even LAN.

    Immm, do i have to have internet connection for people
    who want to access my LAN from outside?

    at the same situation , should i have a LAN connection for them to see my pages ?
    if not , will it only open while a person is in my LAN to connect my server?

    not sure about the first part but for ppl to see your site you will have to do some sort of port forwarding and open up your firewall a little

    For a beginner to open up their LAN to serve web pages is a very risky proposition. Chances are your web server will be hacked and all your computers compromised. Take some good advice and do some learning about Apache before you start trying to serve pages on the internet. Also, opening up your firewall and serving up a web site will very likely violate your terms of service with your ISP. Doing it will probably result in your account being suspended.

    Good question - why did you download it? PHP-Nuke is a very specific app, not a general development environment.
    It *is* enough. The point of mysqladmin is a nice easy interface to MySQL. If you are happy to use the mysql command prompt then you don't need mysqladmin.


    If you want outside people to see your pages you need:
    1) An internet connection
    2) An ISP that allows it
    3) A router that can handle it
    4) Permissions in any firewall you run.

    THANKS MY FRIEND !

    SO

    JUST RUNNING APACHE.EXE IS ENOUGH , IF I USE PHPNUKE 8
    THE OTHER PHP IS NOT NECESSARY
    BUT THE LAST QUESTION?


    ok , i need the elements you counted as 1,2,3,4
    and also assume i have them all
    but at this time ,

    SHOULD I HAVE A LAN CONNECTION ALSO FOR PEOPLE
    RESIDING OUTSIDE OF MY LAN , WHO DESIRE CONNECTING
    MY LOCAL WEB PAGES?


    OR

    I HAVE TO OPEN LAN CONNECTION only, IF ANYONE WHO RESIDES ON MY LAN WANTS TO CONNECT MY SERVER?

    Huh? I didn't say that. PHP-Nuke is a slash-dot type application, not just the PHP module.

    As you haven't said what you are trying to do I *assumed* you needed just the development platform - hence me wondering why you had downloaded PHP-Nuke. in addition, PHP-Nuke *requires* that you have PHP installed and working.

    You will have to tell us about your network for us to be able to answer correctly. Again - you haven't said much, if anything, about how you are connecting to other machines, so I assumed you were at home with a standard ISP DSL style of connection.

    If this isn't the case tell us what *is* there.

    Isn't enough for what? You still haven't said what you are trying to do. Are you trying to build something like slash-dot? Or just trying to learn PHP?
    In which case, as you don't mention a LAN, then you don't need one as far as I can see.

    And *please* don't type in caps!
