I am taking a PHP course and the instructor recommended we try setting up a localhost but our textbook has different approach. We where instructed to use LAMP, WAMP or MAMP depending on our system. I just installed MAMP and running but not sure how is the localhost setup suppose to be, can I just open php file having phpInfo(); and get results. So far FF3 just shows the Header html. Can someone give me a guide to setting up and able to run my own local server? PHP: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"><html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><head><meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" /><title>Hello in PHP</title></head><body><h1>Hello in PHP</h1><?print "Hello, world!";phpInfo();?></body></html> Aside from this is it possible to create Flash website using readfile(text.txt); for the content?
