People, I want to ask for your help with a simple problem, I want to start learning PHP. However, my browser can't parse local PHP files, I downloaded the PHP.net installation, but still local files remain blank... Could anyone solve this (probably) easy problem? I have windows ME installed, maybe that's the problem...

have you installed a local server like apache? you've got to have a server installed to run PHP on.

check out this wikipedia entry on [a href=\"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WAMP\" target=\"_blank\"]WAMP[/a] for a little more explanation

have a look here [a href=\"http://www.indigostar.com/microweb.htm\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.indigostar.com/microweb.htm[/a]

Its a really great web server, comes with PHP already installed and configured.

I run mine off my flash drive, totally portable and really great to show work off to clients when a connection to the net isn't possible

I use Xampp, this installs PHP, MySQL, Apache, Filezilla, and Mercury. Great for developing websites locally before uploading the to a webserver.
