    php/mysql and chmod

    Hi there all

    Got a question which is keeping me from going any further.
    I need to chmod files and directories on my localhost, on a win2k machine, running apache, php and mySQL, mainly to run phpMyAdmin, test phpnuke, backend, mambo and phpslash, so that I can find out for myself what use they will be to me, and what would be the best option for me to go about building my site.

    i havent the time right now to learn unix, so win2k is my best option, and i need to develop locally 'cos internet connectivity here in ZA is very expensive. .

    Ive thought of installing an ftp prog. (warftp - <<can I use cuteftp on a localhost?>>) to use with the apache webserver, and then chmodding the necessary with that, but that seems to be a roundabout way to do something so "easy".

    Anyway - I would really appreciate a little guidance here, and hopefully solve this "little" problem once and for all - no more late nights....

    Thanks millions

    Permissions work differently on Win2k than they do on unix, with that chmod does not exist on Windows. Are you having a specific problem where phpMyAdmin does not work? It should merely be a task of changing paths around in the config files for each of those programs. So is there a specific program which is not running correctly? If so, what is not working with it? Chances are you don't need to chmod anything but merely need to change a few settings in the script.
    Please don't PM me with questions.

    hehehehe

    Hi Freddy

    It looks like I'm the dumb-***! ;-)

    After reading many tuts, help files and bb's, I thought that chmod was necessary in both os's - that said, your comment makes perfect sense - to answer your question, my problems are with setting up mysql in win2k, importing database structures from the original php applications, into mySQL running on localhost, and then testing.
    I basically wanted to sort out all problems first, and then get going, but now that you mention it, I needn't worry (assuming your answer is correct, which I hope it is! )

    Thanks for your help!!

    I wouldn't worry about chmod as much as I would about getting mysql, php and a web server running. MySQL is rather simple to get going on Win2k, if you have any further problems just ask.

    But I would suggest you get your test env setup first before worrying too much about file permissions for scripts that you have yet to install. You might want to do a quick search on these forums for a php bundle that will install php, mysql and apache for you. firepages puts out a pretty good one. Or you can do like I would and dive in head first and install each one on your own, you will come out of it with some good knowledge.
