For Windows 2000, apache 2.2.8, php 5.2.5, mysql server 5.0
I am trying out open source accounting packages and I need to install PHP. I am not used to installing open source software. I installed the latest Apache, PHP, and MySQL. The “test.php” script worked. MySQL would not add a user.
I tried to install phpMyAdmin-2.11.5-rc1-english and got errors that it couldn’t load php_mysql.dll and php_mysqli.dll modules. After several hours I finally discovered that I needed to go back and use windows “Add/Remove Programs” to change PHP installation to install those extensions. I now added the correct paths to php.ini
to the php.ini file.
Recall, test.php worked before. Now when I try to load “test.php” or any .php, Firefox opens window “What should Firefox do with this file?” Open with, Save, etc. PHP is not working. I scoured the web and applied every advice I can find, but PHP does not work.
How to figure out what it needs?
