Trying to make PHP things work from scratch along-with mah recent love and in that way, have been facing quite small but considerable issues which I would like to discuss here in near time provided I get another broadband line extended at my place soon.
As you have to make lot of other things work if you want a PHP server work, I am planning to elaborate the steps to install and configure them for other developer planning to dive into this thing.
Till that time, just for personal note, if you are planning to take risk with latest stable version of PHP i.e. PHP 5.2.3, then you have to make following change in httpd.conf file of your Apache server –
#BEGIN PHP INSTALLER EDITS - REMOVE ONLY ON UNINSTALLPHPIniDir "C:\\server\\PHP\\"AddType application/x-httpd-php .phpLoadModule php5_module "C:\\server\\PHP\\php5apache2_2.dll"#END PHP INSTALLER EDITS - REMOVE ONLY ON UNINSTALL
#BEGIN PHP INSTALLER EDITS - REMOVE ONLY ON UNINSTALLScriptAlias /php/ "c:/server/PHP/"AddType application/x-httpd-php .phpAction application/x-httpd-php "/php/php.exe"#END PHP INSTALLER EDITS - REMOVE ONLY ON UNINSTALL
So keep watching this space by the time I dive back with greater passion, more posts & random thoughts!
