Hi,

I am Newbie in node.js. I want to know how to integrate it into php. I have install node js in windows. If possible please do let me know how to run it in browser . Tried to run below code but when run on browser it downloads the page. Do i have to install some other package like memcache and so on . Using xampp on windows .

var http = require('http');
http.createServer(function (req, res) {
  res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'});
  res.end('Hello Node.js\n');
}).listen(8124, "www.test.com");
console.log('Server running at http://www.test.com:8124/');

Node.js is used to make servers, not to be used in them.  Please read the info here: http://nodejs.org/  I do not believe that Node.js can run PHP or in PHP.

Node.js does not run in a browser.  It runs on the server and is used to create the server functions.

Regular javascript runs in your browsers, not Node.js.

You have to install it in your server.  Then you can use the examples on http://nodejs.org/ to create useful functions.

Using Node.js is not as simple as writing a web page.  You have to make use of the libraries that exist to create a web server that will understand page requests.  There are a lot of examples there and you will just have to work thru them.

Are you still having issues with Node?  I've since started using it quite a bit and can offer some assistance if necessary?
