Good Afternoon all Smile

Hopefully you can help.

I have seen somewhere, but now can't find Sad , a utility that enables you to load and view php pages off line on your pc. I think it also mean't you didn't need IIS running. Basically I am looking to use a Portal Script to create a web site, but rather than have to fiddle with it online I want to do all my changes on my pc, then upload it when it's done.
I thought I had seen something in a lockergnome mail but I have spent 3 hours trawling through my archives and as yet haven't found it. It may have been on a cd from a magazine.

Can anyone help, either with the program name or url please? Smile

Or if anyone has any other options.

Many thanks in advance

You could download and install Apache, and then use that with the PHP module installed - you can get that from PHP.net.

I don't know of a standalone program, though.

I ran across this yesterday. It installs apache, mysql, and php for windows all with one mouseclick (or so it claims).

I tried installing apache on mine once. I couldn't make heads or tails of how to config it.

EDIT: The bloody link might help LOL

I installed apache, php, and mysql on my windows laptop by following the instructions from a book from sitepoint.com. You can download the first four chapters in pdf for free. The first couple walk you through it and made it almost too easy.

if your package doesn't work, Its not to difficult to install Apache and PHP support. Yes it took me a day to customize it but the actual install was pretty quick.

Another good program to look at is Abyss Web Server. I tend to prefer it over Bad Blue. There are also several good php editors which will parse/test your php on your own machine. dev-PHP is the best by far (and free!) in my opinion.

I'm new to php and my task is to write a php script which will allow remote access to a filestore via a webpage. Now from what I've read so far I believe I need a php installation and a webserver installation on my computer.

Now I'm trying to write a php script offline at home on windows xp. My actual script will be tested and run on a linux box with apache and internet access. What should I use to write and test the script at home first? Or maybe even just get an idea of how scripts work.

Also will there be issues in then running the script on linux?

The simplest way to test out your script is with QuickPHP. Takes 5 seconds to download and no installation required. It's a web server with built-in PHP support which runs as a standalone application (does not mess up your windows).

visit the quickphp page for more info:
