Installing PHP Under Personal Web Server - Installing PWS
(Page 2 of 4 )

Installation for PWS is pretty easy and is self-explanatory, but make sure you read all the screens as you go through the installation, download PWS setup file(s) or run setup.exe from your windows 98 CD (eg : d:\add-ons\pws\setup.exe).

Keep clicking next till your installation is completed, we shall assume that your installation was a smooth ride and you had no problem whatsoever in the whole process.

You will have to reboot your computer after you finished the installation.

Note: PWS version 4.0 which we are using in the article is also included with the Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack and was designed for Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Windows 98 and Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 4.0 with Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.01 or later. PWS is not supported and cannot be installed on any version of Windows XP

Testing PWS Installation:

PWS should run automatically after you reboot your computer. Please note a little PWS Icon in your system tray, which shall tell you that PWS is running now, double click that icon to open the Personal Web Manager which shall tell you the host name and other information.

Open your favorite browser, in the Address area type the http://hostname/ eg: http://oldhag/ to see if PWS is installed and working fine. Let me show you a sample output on my machine.

Note: You can also use http://localhost/ or (which is your local IP) in the browser Address.

If you see the Welcome to Microsoft Personal Web Server on your browser Eureka we have done it. Welcome Aboard!

Also notice that the Personal Web Manager window shows you active connections, Visitors, Requests and some more information.

Go fetch yourself a lemonade and pat yourself on your back, we have done it.

Uninstalling PWS

You can uninstall PWS running the setup again by selecting the ‘Remove All’option.

Note: You can stop and start your web server from the Personal Web Manager Window.
