Installing PHP under Windows
(Page 1 of 6 )

This article is geared towards people who want to code and test their own, or other people's, php scripts on their Windows box. No advanced technical knowledge is assumed. This tutorial is unsuitable for advanced users.

Why Apache and MySQL? Because they are available for free, quite easy to use and reliable. Why windows? Because there are many installation guides written for the Linux user, but Windows generally gets overlooked. And getting it all to work can be a real daunting task.
