I got some problems installing PHP on the system. I bought the Kevin's book "PHP MySQL Database ..." and tried to follow the steps in the book. However, having done the very first php script i couldn't see the date on the page. Obviously, there's something wrong done during installation. But, I have tried to reinstall PHP for 3 times and it is still the same.
I am using IIS, PHP, MySQL. My system seems to recognize MySQL availability and PHP seems to be functioning as well.
