(cut-n-paste stuff and adjust to suit)

Click on PHPDEV423 .  
Download the PHPGB zip file and unpack .  
Put the PHPGB folder into the WWW folder in the PHPDEV folder .  
/ phpdev / www / phpgb / phpgb_index.php  
Create a bookmark in your browser called http://localhost    (dont worry  
about the http:// bit you can use this offline and the http://localhost  
is just the technical word used)  
Click on localhost .  
Click on the phpgb folder .  
Click on the phpgb_index.php file .  
PHPGB will now start up and you can use it pretty much as normal .

Download a copy of apache from www.apache.org, php from php.net and
mysql from mysql.com

then, follow these directions:

hope this helps


Re: Local PHP script executor

Do you have Apache?
First requirement is you should have local server like Apache or IIS.
Secondly just down load php binaries from php.net (win32 binaries)

Install it on your local m/c.
Try your self. If not done for further detail contact me.. don't worry
I'll not charge anything to you.

 Yes, PHP itself. You can install it locally.


 Or there are a number of installer packages for Windows that do the (not
actually particularly complicated) setup steps for you.

Unless next_page.php generates PHP, the script with this include will
only get HTML.
