Greetings everybody!

I'm really new to PHP and I really want to learn. I see that it's somewhat similar to c++. My question is, could i preview the work I'm doing on my computer before I upload the finished project to my web host? I downloaded PHP, MySQL and even Apache but still can't get it to work. Help anyone???

I advise you first to read documentation about installing and using Apache, PHP and MySql. A starting point could be "How to Get the Killer Trio Apache, PHP, and MySQL Up and Running" at link


RTFM is an almost extinct art form, it should be subsidized.

Yes its possible to run your PHP scripts locally. And you have downloaded the correct pieces of software. To install have a read of this guide

If you ahve any problems please post back. Also make sure you have downloade the zipped bineries version of PHP and not the PHP Installer version.
