    hi all. i need madd help here.

    i dont know anything about PHP, except that it is a server side scripting language that once learned, can make my site alot more interactive and enjoyable for my visitors.

    i found this site when surfing for information:
    http://www.badblue.com/down.htm. it says that it is a very small server application that, well, since its a server that you download onto your PC, you can easily test out your new PHP enables pages without having to upload them and check them online. does that make sense?

    anyhow, will someone with PHP kknow-how please check out that site and tell me what you think?

    If you are just starting out I would suggest downloading one of the prebuilt packages that contain a webserver(normally apache), PHP, MySQL builtin or if you please you could download apache and install it on your computer then download php and install it as well. Check out NuSphere or search this forum for php install bundles
    Please don't PM me with questions.
    Use the forums, that is what they are here for.

    Yeah I have heard that one is pretty good. I have never used one I installed each piece separately, it sucked but I felt like I really learned something new. You can get them separately at

    http://www.mysql.com
    http://www.apache.org

    im surprised that after i downloaded that app - PHPTriad - it lacks general usage instructions/directions/help files.

    ive got Edit++ now and created a file "HELLO.php" and have it waiting in a new PHP folder but how do i view it with the new download i have?

    You need to dot he following things...
    Go to the install folder (c:/apache from memory) and run apache.exe.
    Place the file you wish to view in the htdocs folder under the apache root (probably c:/apache/htdocs).
    In your browser go to the address http://localhost/filename

    That should work, if not post again telling what happens!..
