Do I smell an affiliate programming coming on? :D
A little clarification please ...
I bought your book. I downloaded and installed PHP and mySQL no problem ... til I got to page 21.
I opened php.ini and had no problems until instructed to make the settings match:
doc_root = the document root folder of your web server
I'm not sure what you mean here - the web server my site will be hosted on? ... document 'root' folder?? is this 'public html' directory folder? Or is this a 'server' we've set up on my system?? Arrrgg. Just when I thought things were clickin' along!
Also, the next one says:
extension_dir = the PHP install directory
Is this on my system?? All I could find on my system was php.exe ... this can't be what your refering to ... is it???
Yeeesh ... makes me feel like such a moron having to ask but, could your explain further as to who's servers, located where, with samples of what these paths should look like???
Double aarrgg! Thanks for any help you can give. Was havin'a great time 'til this snagged me up. I think y'er going to earn every canadian peso equivelent I paid for your book (about $70 with shipping and GST) trying to help this dinosaur understand it.
