I am trying to teach myself basic PHP so i can make a few simple pages, but i dont seem to be able to configure it all properly.
I have installed:
- PHP 5.2.something
- MySQL 5.x.x
- Apache 2.2
Because i dont have a server (yet, or use of a server) im using my own computer to act as the server when i want to test files locally. but its not working.
Im only running windows ME so am using DreamWeaver MX 6.
I set up a new site within dreamweaver, that has no testing server or remote server and the localhost section i left as http://127.0.0.1
but i wasnt sure where to save the files to make it so they run wen i want to preview a page.
Any pointers/help will be much appreciated, if its easier add my MSN: email@example.com
to help me out
EDIT: i was previously getting error connecting to server but i now get a blank white page, seems like a step in the right direction lol, but im not sure, maybe the php isn't running or something?
Im only running a simple hello world exercise with the call echo "hello world"
