How to run PHP-Apps under Windows?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I recently came across some very cool apps that were done in PHP.
Yet, I donīt really know what runtime system I need to have in order
be able to run them under Windows, as if they were "normal apps".

I could imagine: apache and PHP.
Is there a preconfigured package that can be used as a runtime systm
for running PHP-Apps locally?

Thanks a million in advancem


Re: How to run PHP-Apps under Windows?


It depends on what these apps do. For example, if they are socket or
GTK apps, you must have the CLI version of PHP installed.

If they are cool webapps, you will need a decent webserver (e.g Apache,
Xitami) and PHP installed. You can configure PHP to be used as CGI (for
Xitami) or as a module (for Apache, CGI also possible)
