Need help setting up PHP and MySQL on Windows XP

I’m trying to get php working so I can test without having to upload each time. I have XAAMP and MSYQL installed and it shows them running when I start them from control panel.

I also have php installed and it starts a Command line window when I run php.exe. That’s all I get. I don’t know what to do after that. If someone know a good tutorial to learn how to run it, I would appreciate it.

I’m ok with the coding, I just don’t know how to get it started and I want to be able to step through programs line by line to debug them. Thanks.

Hey Brian, if you installed XAAMP properly and it is running, you should be able to navigate to your script like this http://localhost/yourdir/ - using your browser (“yourdir” - is the directory within web root, check your XAAMP configuration to find where is this)
