I am brand new to PHP and MySQL, and am trying to install both on WinXP where I just installed Apache 1.3.1 I think - and it also has Oracle 9i database running.
Basically, I type in http://localhost
into my browser (Mozilla) and it shows the successful installation page for apache. I then installed PHP 5 from the installer, and have edited the config file for apache and the php.ini file which i have copied to windows, windows/system32 etc. PHP is in c:/php. When i installed php it said it hadnt configured apache.
i have changed doc root and extension_dir in php and accordingly in apache conf file. i have also added the AddType application... stuff in Apache. I think I have done it all ok, and then I have the test script saved asa php file in my doc root folder - c:/web:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
<b>An Example of PHP in Action</b><br />
<?php echo "The Current Date and Time is: <br>";
echo date("g:i A l, F j Y.");?>
<?php phpinfo(); ?>
I keep getting the error 404 when I try to test php in the browser by typing http://localhost/test.php
The requested URL /php/php.exe/test.php was not found on this server.
Apache/1.3.31 Server at localhost Port 80
doesnt even work in internet explorer.
any clues as to where I am going wrong - is it anything to do with Oracle and the apache that it has? when i try and stop the oracle apache it has an error in an sqlplus file which wasnt happening before and in fact a couple of errors from oracle have been happening at startup since.
Many thanks for your help ;o)
