Thanks for all the awesome links. Since you guys seem to know so much, do you guys have any resource for installing PHP on XP and maybe even Linux?

I installed the MAMP server app.
It's working.

One thing: Why when I want to actually go to one of my php pages I am forced to type in this

Code:
http://localhost:8888/php1.php
..instead of the actual file path name?

Because it's a server-side language and has to be run through a server to work.

...

Using MAMP how do I get debugging turned on? I will try removing a ";", making it wrong, but no errors come up in Safari or Firefox.


Any suggestions?

New Question

In PHP, when you use the exec command, does other extensions you install work without any additional steps other than having to install it in the first place?
