First ever posting in these forums and complete beginner at web-building with PHP and MySQL... but wanting to learn. Started building with FrontPage2000 but have taught myself HTML and CSS - and the nearest I got to programming was a bit of Fortran at University... hmm, don't ask - but let's just say that I dropped everything computer and maths-wise by my final year and did straight Sociology instead! Now a full-time mum at the moment... so I have time to learn again.
I have downloaded the PDF file of Kevin Yanks PHP and MySQL book and got hold of PHP 4.3.3 and MySQL 4.0.13 but rather lost as to which Apache I should be downloading from http://httpd.apache.org/
Read in Kevin's book that Apache 1.3 is the one that I want...? But then on the Apache site it says that Apache 2.0.47 is the best available version... so not sure which to download - I can't see that he mentions whether I should be downloading the Win32 Source or Win32 Binary version - but assume for Windows XP that I would need one of these?
Also noticed that you can get a combined versions of these three programs from: http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Softwa...allation_Kits/
... but they don't all appear to work with Windows XP.
So I would be very grateful for some enlightenment to at least get me downloading the right software! Hopefully there is hope for me yet... ?
I live in hope...
