As per my understanding steps 10 and 11 in the instructions is to test whether your PHP installation working fine.

For which in step 10 he is asking to create a website in IIS with name PHPVersionInfo and then create a index.php in that website and then may be you can run this from browser and check your installations

10. Add PHPVersionInfo as a website in IIS and set “index.php” as default page.
>> Change PHPVersionInfo with the website you are using, And open it in IIS, Locate Default Document and add a new document there like Index.php or Default.php which should be default page for your content.
Actually not required if youare able to browse your webpages.

11. Create a simple PHP script file “index.php” and save it in PHPVersionInfo website.
>> It is not required if you are able to browse your webpages.

Hello,

What Jaseem trying to explain you on step 10 & 11 is to just test the PHP component (version information) and functionality of PHP by adding a simple PHP page.

e.g. create a page called phpinfo.php with below code that will show you all the information of the PHP installed.

<?php
phpinfo()
?>

Open in new window


Regards,
Sanjay Santoki
