Need Help for Displaying PHP file on localhost- HTTP 403 forbidden

Hi there,
I am Tarjana. This is my first thread.

I have installed PHP 5.4, MySQL 5.5, Apache 2.2.22 on Windows 7.

I’ve followed the book “build your own database … by Kevin Yank, 4th edition” I made the required changes suggested by Author in one post during installaton.

Installation has gone well. It shows “http://localhost:8080” page but when I write first PHP file, it shows “HTTP 403 forbidden”. It doesn’t show php file.

I need your help please to resolve this issue.

Thanks and Regards
